Review Les Grottes de Sare

The prehistoric Caves of Sare

Third most visited site in the Basque Country, the Caves of Sare offer a one-hour guided tour with sound and light show, and a free access to our museum and to the megalithic park.

During the tour you will discover three topics : the unusual geology of a rather dry cave, a prehistoric habitation and the origins and mythology of the Basque people according to anthropologist José-Miguel de Barandiaran.

You will have free access to our museum to discover Human evolution from prehistory to the present day and to the megalithic park explaining what megalithism in the Basque Country is.

Between sea and mountains, Sare is ready to welcome you...

With the villages of Ainhoa, Zugarramurdi and Urdazubi/Urdax in Navarra, Sare is located in the Xareta cross-border area Xareta.

Throughout history (Carlist Wars, World Wars) and in its activities (smuggling, night work…), Sare has always had privileged relationships with the other provinces of the Basque country on both sides of the border.
