Beasain

CONTENTS

The Goierri's metallurgic way

Located in an impressive nature setting, Beasain maintains a harmonic duality between the dispersed farmhouses' rural atmosphere and the historic industrial character of the locality.

Medieval bridge of the Iagrtza Collection of Historical Buildings

The first signs of Beasain's industry emerged in the Yarza and Igarzaolea foundries, in the 15th century, lasting until the 19th century. The iron transformation and the building of capital goods for the railway have been the main drivers of this municipality's economic and social invigoration. Likewise, Beasain has an important cultural and archaeological heritage. Among its most singular buildings, we find the Hermitage of San Gregorio Magno, in Arriaran, and the Church of San Martín de Tours, in the Astigarreta Quarter. Its great charm is the Igartza collection of historic buildings, an evidence of the population settlement model that the town had during the Middle Ages. It includes the Igartza Palace -one of the great works of civil architecture in wood-, the foundry, as well as the wooden channel, the Dolarea Farmhouse -used for making cider and sheltering travellers-, the mill, the medieval bridge, and the transept.
Other interesting places are the Agirrezabal Farmhouse, in Basque traditional style; the Sagastigutia Municipal Park, with a careful network of paths and amazing views over the Goierri; or mountains like Larrunari (Txindoki) or Murumendi.
At the end of October, they hold the 'Cultural Autumn', a fortnight devote to painting, photography, books, music, and theatre.
On the second Saturday of November, they celebrate the Agricultural Fair, including a contest of black puddings and the sale of fruits and vegetables.
