A little history
Important prehistoric remains are preserved, among them the cave of Ekain and its cave paintings belonging to the Magdalenian period. Not much data has been preserved from the Roman occupation, but it is known that the area suffered a great occupation by this civilization. In more modern times it has been a highlight in such important events in contemporary history as the Civil War.
