Sare, listed village: Here, we take the time: Saran Astia is the motto of the village. Time to stroll on the village square where, as in all Basque villages, we find the famous trilogy of the pediment, church and town hall (Herriko etxea) surrounded by beautiful mountains.

In the village, where some houses date from the 11th century, in addition to the numerous bridges, washhouses and oratories, we will linger at the level of the Saint Martin church, enlarged and raised in the XNUMXth century, with a five-storey tower. Inside, three floors of galleries in carved oak and their turned wood balusters attract attention. The bell tower, destroyed by fire, was recently rebuilt and can be visited every Monday, in summer, at XNUMX am. A very interesting history of the village is offered on this occasion.

Away from the village, the Sainte-Catherine chapel was rebuilt in the 16th century on the foundations of an older building (XNUMXth century). It also has wooden floors. I invite you to take a detour through the district where it is located, the Ihalar district, a listed bastide street with its houses dating from the XNUMXth century for the oldest.

A detailed guided tour of the village is possible, with the program evoking the smuggling of yesteryear, the study of many lintels carved on the facades and the visit of the farmhouse with frescoes, decorated in 1936 by refugees fleeing Francoism. .
