Gernika and its surroundings hide a great heritage, both natural and cultural. Discover the history of a unique town, symbol of the Basque Country and Peace. Follow the steps of historical figures such as Wilhem Von Humboldt or John Adams, to understand the history of this town and admire the biodiversity of one of Europe’s most important wetlands.
The visit begins in Gernika, without a doubt, the most universal Basque town. We have designed a journey through its history in which its historical relevance, its symbolism and its current status as a city of Peace are reviewed. Discover the heritage that survived the bombing and how its people have managed to recover it to generate projects full of life.
But Gernika is much more than culture and history. The historic village is located in the heart of Urdaibai, territory declared in 1984 as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. Join us in a walk through the marshes of Arteaga, between castles and tide mills, while we observe the different species of birds, which vary in each season of the year, which makes each experience unique and unrepeatable.
In short, this is an essential visit to get to know the history of the Basque people and discover the biodiversity of this beautiful territory, the ideal combination for a family outing!
