San Marko Fort, viewpoint of the area  San Marko Fort, viewpoint of the area

Standing in a privileged spot, deep in the countryside at less than 10 km from San Sebastian, the San Marko Fort is most certainly the best vantage point in Oarsoaldea. Its perfect location makes it an important and privileged viewpoint of Gipuzkoa's coast, where you can admire the famous bays of La Concha, Pasaia and Txingudi among other places of interest.
This military structure located on the top of mount Bizarain at 260 m altitude was built in the 19th century over the town of Errenteria for the defense of the area. Nowadays it does not have any military use; the San Marko Fort was occupied by the army until 1970 and today is integrated into Lau Haizeta Park, forming part of the leisure-cultural area.

Discover its secrets

Discover the sensation of a century-old military structure by visiting parts of the fort never before opened to the public. Learn about the history of the building as you travel back in time. Take the panoramic lift and enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding area.

Arizmendi enea House Museum

          Arizmendi has 2  Arizmendi has  

Urdinola-Arizmendi enea house, located in the heart of Elizalde neighborhood in Oiartzun, is a clear example of a vacation house of Basque bourgeoisie of the early twentieth century. Despite being a building of the eighteenth century, its structure and aesthetics were reformed to adapt to tastes and needs of the new family (Arizmendi). Due to its peculiar typology and the excellent state of conservation, in 2020 it was declared Heritage of Special Interest. During the guided tours offered in this House Museum, we will delve into the lifestyle and experiences of that time.

Visiting all rooms, we will travel back through the time to understand the social behaviors of that period, discover the characteristics of quotidian life and know different passages of history, such as the nationalist movement and the Emakume Abertzaleon Batza group (Basque nationalist women), the beginning of the Civil War and the subsequent execution to Angel Arizmendi.

The house, in addition to a spacious garden (nowadays public) and the different rooms distributed over three floors, has the Tourist Office on the ground floor.
