The renovation of Arantzazu includes interventions that have been developed during the last four years to recover the environment around the Basilica of Arantzazu on the occasion of its fifth centenary.

These interventions had, on the one hand, the aim of adapting the physical environment (through an Special Program of Landscape Protection and an urbanization project of the Basilica’s outer doors that includes a tourist office and a parking) and, on the other hand, the renovation of the Old Seminary and ball courts to equip them as a new meeting place: Gandiaga Topagunea. In addition, a new place has been built next to the old chapel in order to host a sculpture donated by Jorge Oteiza. This building is known as Misterio.

The cultural centre “Gandiaga Topagunea” is conceived as a group of stony blocks that are perforated by large holes, like an excavated void and horizontal cuts that open the building to the imposing natural landscape. The cultural centre holds cultural and exhibition programmes.
