The Sanctuary of Arantzazu, is by its own merits, one of the most charismatic and important temples of Euskadi. One of the most visited religious buildings in our environment. Located on the very abyss, surrounded by authentic nature, this religious complex of Oñati is one of the most representative elements of contemporary sacred art in Euskadi. And, although this temple has been destroyed and rebuilt up to 3 occasions (1553,1622 and 1834), the current version of the temple (twentieth century), attracts the attention of experts and inexperienced. And it is not for less, the forms and styles of each one of the elements that compose it are authentic works of art.
