Guided tour for children (between 7 and 12 years of age)


  • Foru Plaza: an explanation of the founding of Guernica.
  • The reproduction of Picasso’s “Guernica”: the history of the bombing and a brief history of the painting.
    • We will identify the different characters in Picasso’s painting, and we’ll put the “Guernica” jigsaw puzzle together in groups.
  • The Pasealeku air-raid shelter:
    • A simulation of the bombing: just for a minute we turn the lights off and listen to the sound of bombs exploding. The person in charge of the group will decide whether or not to carry out this simulation.
  • The exterior of the Assembly House:
    • In days gone by, inhabitants of the so-called “Bocineros” or “Horn” mountains would blow on their horns to call the general assemblies And today that’s just what we’re going to do!   
    • We will also emulate the swearing-in of the Lehendakari, reading words spoken by the first Lehendakari, written on a parchment in four languages.
