Agarre raised granary

The Agirre -or Agarre- is the only original raised granary built in the first half of the 16th century in Gipuzkoa. It belongs to the Town Council of Bergara, which restored it between 1983 and 1985.

 

Top ring beams and gaps were built in wood, without nails, and put together by means of a mortise and tenon joint system.

 

The raised granary is one metre over the floor and supported by four stone bases. Likewise, the staircase leading to the entrance in the façade is made of stone too.

 

The raised granary a large wood chest with different sections to store cereals, whereas on both sides there are departments to store nuts and dry fruit. As for the ground floor, there is a room that remains closed that worked as a garret for farming implements.
