2 museums you can't miss

Do you know that visiting a museum can improve your mood and reduce stress?

In Zarautz you will find a wide range of museums and exhibitions. Archaeology, photography, history... to satisfy the curiosity of the most restless. If you dare to make a stop in this beautiful town in the Basque Country, you can choose the artistic expression that you like the most.

This week I invite you to enjoy two museums that are essential.

Museum of Art and History

The Museum of Art and History of Zarautz is housed within the archaeological-monumental complex of Santa Maria la Real de Zarautz, specifically in the Bell Tower of the parish of Santa María la Real. Guided tours are carried out throughout the museum's archaeological-monumental complex.

It is worth visiting the Parish of Santa Maria La Real de Zarautz, built at the end of the 15th century in the Gothic style, where the magnificent baroque altarpiece built in 1560 by Andrés and Juan de Araoz stands out.

The complex formed by the Church and the adjacent Tower House, currently converted into the Museum of Art and History of Zarautz, is impressive. The floor of the museum is partially glazed to be able to observe the necropolis that is hidden in its foundations and travel in time, with an itinerary that begins with the remains of burials found in the basement of the building itself, which date back to the 10th century and more than a hundred objects to discover part of the history of the town.

Photomuseum (Film and Photography Museum)

A 5-story museum dedicated to the world of photography. If you are a photography lover, you will not be bored, it is a beautiful and very complete museum, a visit that you cannot miss, because it is not very common to find museums dedicated exclusively to photographic art.

In this museum you will discover the evolution of photography throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, with a beautiful collection of photography machines and utensils. Discover it here.

In addition, I advise you to visit the temporary exhibitions that are usually scheduled almost every week, they are usually very interesting. And if you decide to make the reservation through our website you will have a 10% discount on the ticket price.
