Gasteiz, Medieval City

Gasteiz, Medieval City

 

The visit to Vitoria-Gasteiz´s Historic District, declared a Monumental Complex in 1997, will take us to places where time seems to stand still.
The original medieval layout,  in an almond form , has remained intact since its foundation by  the King  Sancho VI “The Wise” more than 8 centuries ago. The medieval city centre with its charminatmosphere is well-preserved. It  has already received 3 Europa Nostra awards, that support the work carried out in the rehabilitation and recovery of emblematic spaces and buildings of the medieval almond.
The Historical Center is based on a hill presided by Santa María´s Cathedra. Next to the Cathedral, the towers of t San Miguel, San Vicente and San Pedro churches form the best known shape of the city.

Its streets keep themes of the artisan crafts that were located there: Blacksmithing, Shoemaking, Cutlery, Painting … These streets house the oldest and most unique buildings in the city.
During the walk through the old town, you will also find  time to taste the richness of Basque cuisine in the form of “pintxos” in  bars, taverns and restaurants that you will find in the  neighborhood.
On the route, always slow, between pintxos and wines, there are also palaces and medieval buildings such as the ” Casa del Cordón”, ” Hurtado tower”, the “Portalón” or  Escoriaza-Esquivel, Montehermoso or Bendaña palaces , which  actually host cultural centers or Museums
