Fodor's Expert Review Notre-Dame de l'Assomption

Ainhoa Religious Building/Site/Shrine
The village’s most noteworthy building is the Romanesque church of Notre-Dame de l'Assomption. Founded in the 13th century by Premonstratensian monks, it has a traditional Basque three-tier wooden interior with carved railings and ancient oak stairs; women sat on the ground floor, while men occupied the first balcony, and the choir sang in the loft above.
