  All Baztan-Bidasoa villages worth a visit as each and every one of them have kept the traditional architecture of the area.    Among them, of particular administrative Baztan Valley, as this orgainzado under a university, the oldest of the organizational forms that exist in Navarra. The fifteen villages of the valley form a single municipality and community owned lands (over 80%) are enjoyed by all neighbors.    All peoples are organized in neighborhoods that can be both urban and isolated group homes (known as hamlets). Traditional buildings are usually rectangular base of lime stone but mostly blank gable roof eaves with small slope and flown on the facade. Formerly the buildings were usually all wood, but because of the fires started to stone them, although in some cases have been preserved wooden facades at the top.

The facade, almost always facing south or east and its most common feature is a great gate and large windows. Large wooden balconies on the first floor is another of the major characteristics of these traditional buildings.    In this section you will find information on the peculiarities of each people in the list of the valleys on the left.
