The Prehistoric Caves

A 80 000 years long history is waiting  you at the Isturitz and Oxocelhaya caves.

Go to one of the richest archelogical sites in Europe, in the "Vallée de l'Arbéroue" where you will find the "Colline de Gaztelu" with its two exceptionnal caves.

Inhabited first by the Neandertal man, then by the Cro-Magnon man, the Isturitz Cave reveales to the visitors some  very important items : horses drawings (inluding the famous basque Pottok), european bisons, peintures, and a multitude of objects informing us about the everyday life of the first inhabitants of our region.

The Oxocellaya Cave, a sanctuary, has been shaped by water. It is a natural master-piece, a kind of rocky cathedrale with monumental concretions built up during milleniums.

 The two caves are visited in one time.
