The Diego Gómez Musical Association is a non-profit organization whose objective is the preservation, maintenance and dissemination of the organ of the church of San Miguel Arcángel de Larraga. It is an instrument that is considered one of the most important historical and artistic interest of Navarre.

To put value on the instrument, in 2008 he created the Organ Cycle Diego Gómez. An activity that takes place in the second half of August, directed by musicologist and composer Jesus Mª Muneta Martínez de Morentin and which is composed of several professional solo organ concerts and chamber music. Through the cycle the most outstanding musicians of the autonomous and national panorama pass.

In 2014 he promoted the restoration of the façade of the organ and the tribute to the technical director of the cycle from an institutional, popular and academic point of view. In the institutional participated the Government of Navarra and the City council of Larraga.
