Architecture students participate in the restoration of hermitages in Zeanuri (Vizcaya) with the Gondra Barandiaran Foundation.

Fifteen students from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd years of Architecture collaborated voluntarily by drawing up plans of several hermitages in the area.

The School of Architecture of the University of Navarra and the Gondra Barandiaran Foundation have been involved in the initiative to restore the hermitages of Zeanuri, which has also been supported by the high school of Basque Navarrese Architects and the City Council.

During the last week of June, fifteen students of 1st, 2nd and 3rd year of Architecture carried out measurements and drew up plans of four hermitages: San Isidro, San Justo, La Piedad and San Miguel de Altzusta. This is a voluntary activity in partnership with Tantaka.

With this project, the aim is to gradually renovate, in an organized manner, part of the cultural heritage of the area. "We want to go little by little rehabilitating buildings, looking at the neighboring country, in France, because there is an important network of volunteers, patronage and tax incentives that allow to value and recover the material wealth. This project has been started in Zeanuri and Arratia and then it can be extended to more areas", explains the Gondra Barandiaran Foundation.
