Two challenges for a hectic day in ZARAUTZ.

In the morning, we will dive into nature, along the trails of the Vista Alegre park and orientiering walks, one more way to enjoy Zarautz in the open air.

There are 3 routes of different difficulty and length to choose from. All tours start and end at the Tourist Office. The easiest route is the yellow one, with a 2 km loop around the Vista Alegre park and 10 plates to look for. This option is ideal to do as a family. The orange route is longer, it is 2.7 km long and you have to look for 12 plates. Finally, the red one, the longest and most difficult, is intended for those who know the sport of orienteering. You have to look for 12 plates and complete a 3.9 km loop. "

The participant must obtain a map appropriate to their abilities. In this map, the elements to look for along the  Green-Blue Belt of Zarautz are detailed, specifically the white / orange plates, which are the colors of the orienteering sport. If you find them, you have to write down the letter that is on each plate at the back of the map.

A good opportunity to get to know Zarautz combining sports, the Green-Blue Belt and orientiering walks.


 

In the afternoon, we propose an escape room, "The Blue Room". Based on the legend of the Blue Room of the Narros Palace, it is suitable for a pleasant experience with friends or family.

Legend has it that the waves threw a castaway onto the beach of Zarautz. It was 1572. The stranger was cared for by the owners of the Narros Palace (on the seashore) and they put him up in the Blue Room to recover.

Legend has it that the castaway was a fugitive Huguenot, who, after the massacre carried out by the Catholics on the night of Saint Bartholomew in Paris, tried to escape from France. He left La Rochelle, bound for England in a galleon, but a severe storm in the Bay of Biscay thwarted his voyage. The shipwrecked got worse and in his feverish delirium he cursed and denied the Catholic faith. He died in the Blue Room, without receiving the holy sacraments. It is said that, every year, on August 23 (day of Saint Bartholomew) we can still hear his screams in the palace and that if we are attentive the paintings speak trying to tell us what happened.

Are you willing to discover the who, how and why the shipwrecked was killed?
