Meteorology


You can find this municipality in the Aezkoa Valley, just a few kilometres from the Irati Forest, nestled at the foot of the rocky outcrop of Berrendi in the Sierra de Abodi and bordered by countless meadows and lush green scenery. Despite its medieval origin and the fact that it is one of the oldest towns in the valley, its name in Basque means "new town".

It is one of the finest examples of a traditional aezkoano village with its cobbled streets and doorways topped with the valley's coat-of-arms. You can still see the very oldest house of Aezkoa, dating back to the 16th century; the house of the Arrese family is particularly noteworthy with its spectacular monumental archways.

Hiriberri-Villanueva de Aezkoa has the largest number of listed hórreos (granaries) in the area. The local people are known as 'katedráticos' due to their past dedicated to the manufacture of small chairs known as 'katedras'.

Did you know that...?

Posee 4 hórreos declarados "Bien de Interés Cultural".
