Beasain

Beasain has the greatest population in Goierri, with over 14,000 inhabitants. It’s only 28 minutes away from San Sebastián, driving on the A1. One of its 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 a Conference Centre and Auditorium-, continue through the old foundry (XIII c.), the mill (XIII c.) still in use today and the Dolarea (XVII c.), which used to be a tavern, a lodge, a shop, and a hospital. Currently, the Dolarea Hotel-Restaurant is there.

Churches are a living example of culture and history. If you want to see a few, tour around the neighbourhoods and you will find San Martín de Loinaz and Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (two churches worth visiting), as well as San Martín’s square. In the neighbourhood of Astigarraga you can find a stone dolmen -Larrate-, the hermitage of San Gregorio and San Martín de Tours´ church. If you go to the neighbourhood of Garín you can see San Sebastián’s church. The neighbourhood of Arriaran has San Pedro’s church and the neighbourhood of Matxinbenta-Aratz has San Martín’s church.
