It is made of stone and it consists of a double Gothic arch that is sharply pointed, forming five archivolts, all of them profusely decorated.

Stop At: Laguardia, Laguardia, Province of Alava, Basque Country

The “caves” or family wine cellars, so characteristic of Laguardia, were made during that century.

Almost the whole town could be walked along in these underground corridors that make up the cellars. Each house has its own cellar deep in the ground; the size of the cellar is not proportionally related to the size of the house it belongs to, so there are huge houses with small cellars and vice versa. Their main function is keeping and preserving the wine in the most favourable conditions, although for some time in history they may have been used as shelter or military quarters where conspiracy took place and war drafts were made.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
