The sleepy town of Oñati, set in the middle of a verdant valley, boasts palaces, convents and an old university, making it a great place for a peaceful break before heading off to visit the shrines and little cities all around: Arantzazu's modern church is worth going to see, as is the ancient Church of Sta María la Antigua in Zumarraga.
