“LOOKING FOR THE GALTXAGORRIS"
Basque mitology hidden in Zarautz
We propose you a funy familiar treasure hunt game looking for the Galtxagorris
while you discover the main monuments located at the old quarter of Zarautz.
“The Galtxagorris” are some tiny mitological elves who are hidden in Zarautz. These characters are distinguished by their red pants. Because of their strength and their speed, they can work hard and complete the hardest task in just one night.
Mari, the goddess of the Basque mythology, will give you a map with several clues and pictures and will ask you for help to find these elves. Ask people, walk and run from one part to another with your parents, while you overcome different tests and obtain new clues to find another “Galtxagorri”.
Once you get the objective and join the Galtxagorris into the needle case, Mari will give you a little “surprise” for you to remember this wonderful adventure.
