Alegría Palace

Located in the centre of Gernika-Lumo, Alegría palace hosts the Museo Euskal Herria, or museum of the Basque Country. This magnificent Baroque palace, built in 1773, stands out because of its cut stone masonry façade, railed balconies and the coat of arms of the Allende Salazar family. It is also closely linked to the history of the Basque Country and explains the origins and the development of the country by means of engravings, models and an excellent cartography. Besides, the restored palace is surrounded by beautiful gardens, one of them in French and Romantic style and the other in English style.
