What to see and do in Arre

The Basilica of the trinity of Arre

This interesting building is located on the southern boundary of Arre and bordering Villava-Atarrabia. The basilica and the old bridge that spans the Ultzama river make an architectural ensemble of great beauty. The original temple is of rural Romanesque type with a single nave with tower and chevet with semicircular apse. It is thought to have been erected at the end of the 12th century or the beginning of the 13th century. The chevet is the best preserved part, where Romanesque elements of the original temple can be seen.

Under the present roof there are remains of the original stone slab roof, under them the eaves and the corbels that support it are still in very good condition. In 1891 a house was added to the façade, which includes the Romanesque doorway. Through an atrium, you can access the Romanesque doorway, which has undergone several alterations and consists of a semicircular arch with three archivolts and an exterior moulded rain-guard.
