The historic quarter of Areatza has been declared a Heritage of Cultural Interest under the classification of National Monument by the Department of Culture of the Basque Government. In this area, there are also many elements that are a part of the historical and artistic heritage of the community.
Given their age, some of these historical elements require improvement and must be adapted to present-day needs. The Special Plan of Action aims to promote such renovation, bearing in mind that it preserves national heritage, but, at the same time, through urban regeneration it guarantees the maintenance of the cultural values of heritage by establishing strict urban planning regulations.
