    • The town of Saint-Étienne-de-Baïgorry invites you to discover the history of Lower Navarre and the village through a guided tour.

      The visit begins with the Mehaka interpretation center, whose exhibition traces the history of Lower Navarre from its formation at the end of the 12th century, until the disappearance of its institutions following the French Revolution.

      We then invite you on a walking tour in the heart of the village of Baigorri, to understand what it means to “live in a village” before the Revolution. You will discover the architecture of the houses of Baigorri, the origin of their names, their social status, as well as the history of the Etxauz castle and the church.

      From September to June a guided tour is offered every first Saturday of the month. From July to August, special programming is planned during the week. Information to come.

      To buy tickets for scheduled guided tours: https://boutique.otpaysbasque.com

      To request a guided group tour: animazioa@baigorry.fr / 06.43.62.23.22

      The Mehaka historic center is free of charge from Monday to Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

    The visit to this historic space is very interesting because it covers in a simple but exact way the history of Lower Navarre, one of the 3 provinces of the northern Basque Country. An hour's visit is enough...The signs are bilingual. Euskara and French. Local or not, everyone will find interesting information there. which was my case...

    Very beautiful scenography which allows you to better understand the history of Lower Navarre. A place not to be missed. The guided tour is very interesting led by an enthusiast. Well done.
