Ancient city where the mark of the Roman Empire is still present, the history and heritage of Hasparren are an integral part of this commune of the Atlantic Pyrenees which is a Basque province of labourd.
Currently known for its fameuses tanneries especially in shoe making, we also find in this small piece of Basque country churches and chapel renowned. The church of Saint John the Baptist created in the 16ᵉ century is recognizable by these wooden tribunes. Moreover, recognized as an important place as territory of Novempopulanie its inscription present on a Roman stone testifies to this historical imprint.
At the chapel of the Sacred Heart, the rich decoration will surprise you thanks to the mosaics present in the whole choir.
