Discover the spaces that Artizar has to offer you
Small corners of Urdaibai
Mountains, forests, rivers have always had magical connotations in Euskal Herria. Nature and life intermingle in our mythology.
As a part of the land and sprouts born from it, humble spaces are distributed that link Basque mythology and small corners of Urdaibai. Spaces where the birds sing the message of the ancestors.
Together we will create new legends and traditions that will endure over time.

This is 574 metres of beautiful sandy beach with dunes. There is a different greenish stone in the middle of the beach, an igneous rock called ophite, popularly known as the rock of love.
An old tile kiln was built in this enchanting oak forest. In the forest lives “Driada” who narrates the story, a solitary and beautiful female forest elf who belongs to an oak tree in the forest, from which she never strays more than 300 metres. Her intelligence allows her to communicate with almost all forest creatures, speaking the language of music and plants. Only beings with great resistance to magic can avoid being bewitched. A unique space for the celebration of a variety of cultural events.
Former “Basajaun” hayloft
Which protected the flocks and the shepherds. A space that takes us back in time to the livestock farming of the mid-20th century and a way of life very different from today’s. A meeting point with more primitive agriculture.
Where a beautiful ancient oak tree marks the border between the modern and the ancient. Chirene personality means witty, humorous, joking and eccentric. A personality linked to the Bilbao character full of boastful phrases and a quirky sense of humour.
Espacio arropado por los robles centenarios tan vinculados a la historia de Gernika y de los fueros. Denominado “Gure Baserria” que proviene de baso y herri con origen cultural desde el siglo II y arquitectónico desde hace 500 años. Es la unidad autosuficiente y aislada. Si aparecen agrupadas es en número pequeño en el cruce de un camino o entorno a una ermita que solía ser del dueño del caserío no de la iglesia. Heredado por un único individuo, generalmente el primogénito, aunque el derecho foral permita la libre disposición de los bienes sin existir el concepto de “legitima”. Vivienda, granero, pajar y lagar.
Its location relates it to its meaning, a space linked to the stars. A place that shines with its own light, a seabird colony. It has a festival celebrated on 22 July.
Baserritik plazara viewpoint
In a vineyard under construction overlooking Gernika, we will have the Baserritik plazara viewpoint. Until the middle of the 20th century, the market was held in the open air, as a meeting point for buying and selling and with a clear social function. In 1943, an enclosed area was created. There is an old saying: lunes gernikes golperik ez.
What has a name exists
Basque mythology is considered one of the richest in Europe, matriarchal and having as its main goddess a woman MARI
Under the Urdaibai sky there is a magical space, where earth, air, water and fire give life to our crops to luck or misfortune.
Izenak duenak, izana du translated into Spanish what has a name exists.
That is why we have created different spaces at your disposal where, like the legends of mythology, they will give us fun and magical places that host inexplicable events.
A tasting room with capacity for up to 150 people, which can be converted into 3-4 meeting rooms each with capacity for a maximum of 30-40 people. Artizar is Venus, Goddess of love, beauty and fertility. Mother of nature, entrusted with her and devoted to her. Goddess born of the waves and washed ashore in a shell.
“Txakoligune” or “Wine corner”
The 17th and 18th centuries were the period of greatest splendour for Txakoli, when Bizkaia produced 1,800,000 litres and Gipuzkoa produced 320,000 litres. The Festival of the Branque consisted of placing a green branch of laurel in the farmhouses to announce the arrival of the new vintage. At the end of the 19th century, the Txakoligunes were established in the areas surrounding Bilbao for a social class eager for places of leisure. These picnic areas were at the heart of the new way of understanding life through good food and drink .
Our old premises
Where we grew up with the concept of “garage” wine, a winery with a lot of content and few containers. There we have a 30 m2 room where we will learn about the origins of a project that was born as an innovation and became a classic. Called “Cofradía San Gregorio Nacianceno”, it was created to defend and preserve the production of local wine. Made up of vineyard owners and key economic players such as merchants, landowners, wealthy landlords… All people of good pedigree. It disappeared in 1816 with the liberalisation of trade.
The “Santimamiñe” crypt
A thousand-year-old icon of the culture of Bizkaia. Cave paintings from 14,000 years ago, a World Heritage Site since 2008, explores the origins of humankind. A place where you can soak up the history of Itsasmendi through old vintages that remind us of the road we have travelled.
