 Valpuesta, Berberana, Burgos

The city of Valpuesta is part of the municipality of Berberana and is located in the Valdegovía valley, between Álava and Burgos. The proposal includes the recovery of a group of buildings located in the main public space of the town, between the Torre de los Velasco and the collegiate church of Santa María de Valpuesta. The latter is especially relevant, because some of the earliest evidences of the Spanish language were found there. For this reason, the restored ensemble will be transformed into a center for the study on the origins of Spanish.

Alma Mater

Ignacio Pérez Anzola, Pablo Menéndez Paunero and Héctor Termenón López, with the collaborator Diego Martínez Vélez

Zubiri, Esteríbar, Navarra

In the case of Zubiri, a municipality located in the Esteríbar valley, the proposal is especially attractive due to the privileged location of the building to be restored, a stone building, currently abandoned, next to the Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) coming down from Roncesvalles, and in the vicinity of the bridge that gives its name to the town. This building had different uses through history, such a guesthouse, or a school; the proposals seeks to restore and extend it to convert it into a cultural center.
