Legend has it that in 1469 a shepherd was looking for his goats and stumbled upon an image of the Virgin in a hawthorn bush ( 'arantza' + 'zu' means place of hawthorns in Basque). At that point, people from the towns of Oñati and Arrasate began to make pilgrimages to the site. In addition to being a religious site and a centre for spirituality, the Sanctuary of Arantzazu brings together some of the most representative examples of contemporary Basque art by Oteiza, Chillida, Basterretxea and Sáenz de Oiza.
