Grottes Préhistoriques de Sare

Observation of the geological formations so particular to the cave (small plateau-like structures, tubes, meandres, dwelling site, etc.) Discover the origins of the Basque People and their mythology according to the work of anthropologist José Miguel de Barandiaran. Maybe along the way, you will meet certain divinities such as "Guillen" the Lamin, the genie of the sources... On leaving the cave, the megalithic park and site museum tells the story of the occupation of the cave and explains megalithic times in the Basque Country during the period of Protohistory. A guided visit lasting one hour with son et lumière along a laid-out pathway.
