Araotz and its gems

In this place of great identity we find the famous Oñati-Arrikrutz Caves. This district located in a wonderful natural mountain environment is a place of interest for nature lovers as well as the starting point of various routes, such as The Water Path (PR-Gi-3003) and the ascent routes of the Orkatzategi Mountain or the Deguria zone. We neither should forget the impressive view that the immense walls of the Aitzulo Cave offer, close to the mythical Sandaili Chapel. This unforgettable place will take your breath away!

According to some historians, the explorer and military man Lope Aguirre (1510-1561) was born in Araotz, although this thesis has not been confirmed yet.
