Zúñiga, Navarre

Zúñiga is a town and municipality located in the province and autonomous community of Navarre, northern Spain.

This town was formerly known as Estuñiga, particularly during the Middle Ages, and between that time and the present, it has gone through many spelling variations.

Zúñiga and its variant Zúniga is also a surname, particularly common in the Basque region of Spain and in areas where significant numbers of Basques have immigrated to, including Central America, Chile, and Mexico, to which some of the most important members of the old Zúñiga family went. Famous actress Daphne Zuniga's paternal heritage is Guatemalan. There are also significant numbers of people with this surname in Ecuador, Colombia, Peru, and surrounding countries.
