Saint Honestus (Spanish: San Honesto, French: Saint Honest) known as "Apostle to Navarre and the Basque Country" was, according to Christian tradition, a disciple of Saturninus of Toulouse and a native of Nîmes. Saturninus and Honestus evangelized in Spain, and Honestus was martyred at Pampeluna around 270 AD during the persecutions of Aurelian.
