You will find Igartza’s monumental complex right at the entrance of Beasain. The site dates from the 12th century, when there was a defensive tower instead of a palace. One of Beasain’s charms is the neighbourhood of Igartza, declared a Historic-Artistic Site because of its monumental, architectural and historical value.
Cross the XII century bridge and you enjoy an impressive view of Mount Txindoki. Then admire the Igartza Palace (XV c.) -nowadays the Conference Centre and Auditorium-, continue through the old foundry (XIII c.), the windmill (XIII c.) still in use today and the Dolarea (XVII c.), which used to be a tavern, a lodge, a shop, and a hospital.
