From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Oiartzun is a town of the Basque Country located in the province of Gipuzkoa (Spain).

The name traces back to the Oiasso or Oiarso of the Roman period, an important town dedicated to mining and marine activities. However, it has been pinpointed actually in the current border town of Irun, so the name may have referred to the whole area.

Alfonso VIII of Castile chartered it as town but it took some decades before its independence from Orereta was total.

Notable people

The Spanish ski mountaineer Izaskun Zubizarreta Guerendiain was born in Oiartzun.
