Hasparren owes its name to the oak groves that once surrounded it. Among the remarkable sites and monuments of the city is the Saint-Jean-Baptiste church. Built at the end of the 19th century, its dimensions are impressive: with a capacity of 1800 faithful, it includes two floors of wooden galleries. The chapel of the Sacred Heart, built in the 1930s, is distinguished by the imposing mosaic that adorns its choir and remarkable wall paintings, halfway between the Byzantine and art-deco styles. Hasparren is also known for having welcomed the poet Francis Jammes from 1920 until his death in 1938. His house with green shutters, the house Eyhartzea, has been restored to accommodate associations of the city as well as various exhibitions. It is possible to visit the ARCA workshop, specialized in the conservation and restoration of painted works, free of charge. A stroll in the centre of the village immerses you in Basque culture through the streets named after pelota players, the typical labourdine architecture, and the pediment offering an exceptional panorama of Mount Ursuya. Basque traditions are alive: alongside pelota tournaments, new bowling tournaments are also frequently organised. Finally, Hasparren is located in the heart of a privileged natural environment: the Hasparren moors, located in the Natura 2000 area, are dotted with hiking trails regularly overflown by vultures.
From campsite La ferme Erromardie, it is possible to reach Hasparren in 35 minutes by the A64 motorway. A more touristic route of 50 minutes takes you through Saint-Pée-sur-Nivelle, Espelette and Cambo-les-Bains: the opportunity to discover the beauties of the Basque hinterland !
