History and art

The footprint of our past.

Get to know our curiosity-packed history which is closely tied to the kingdom of Navarre. Quarrels with neighbours and the inhabitants of Gipuzkoa, and important military events during the Carlist wars.

Art filled with spiritually. Beginning with the first prehistoric dolmens, through the Romanesque altarpiece in the shrine of San Miguel, an interesting series of proto-Gothic and Gothic churches, examples of Renaissance churches as well as many from the Baroque era. And some interesting examples of neoclassical art.

In addition, the civil art offers some beautiful examples of Gothic palatial houses like Casa Alkatenea in Lekunberri, Renaissance houses and – especially – Baroque style, such as Casa Juanmartiñena in Aldatz.
