This elegant settlement nestles in the valley of Malerreka, flanked by several mountains including Mendaur; in medieval times it was a merchant's village and still makes its living from commerce today.
The hamlet sprawls around the church of San Pedro
. Renovated in Baroque style, with a distinguished interior, the parish church boasts a notable ashlar tower of medieval appearance which was part of the former Castle of the Count of Lerín.
Also, the 18th century Consistorial House evokes the austere buildings of Baztán valley palaces
Doneztebe/Santesteban is known for its livestock fairs
and also for its Corpus Christi
festival when the village's flag is flown proudly in front of the Santísimo to the sounds of the txistu. You'll also have the chance to enjoy a game of guante here, a form of pelota played in an open square.
