Sare is a historic town situated at the foot of the Pyrenees. The 15th century urban layout with stone houses and traditional Basque farms have been preserved here. The area is perfect for active tourism, especially mountain hiking.

Although the surrounding Pyrenees foothills does not have spectacular heights, there are very picturesque landscapes. From the nearby Rhune mountain, 905 m above sea level, you can enjoy beautiful panoramas of the area and the coast 15 km away. There is a walking trail to the top, but you can also enter here by the historic Rhune Train from the beginning of the 20th century.

The center of the town is built up with houses from the 15th century. The Church of St. Martin. The entire buildings look beautiful against the background of mountain peaks. Outside the city center, you can see traditional Basque farms, many of which date back to the 17th century. They are called Ortillopiz, and one of them houses a museum. Here you can see what the life of the inhabitants of these areas looked like centuries ago.

The attractions of the village are the Sare Caves located on its outskirts. As they were formed in limestone rocks, they have a rich dripstone form. Traces of human existence have been found in the corridors. This discovery was an impulse to build a reconstructed Neolithic village in the vicinity and to create an exhibition on archeology.
