Irun Heritage

Under the denomination OIASSO, Irun was an important Roman port in the 1st and 2nd century A.D. In the 1st and 2nd century the main roads converged in Irun, which served as a bridge between the Peninsula and Europe. The first reference to Irun was the ‘The Town-Charter’ granted to Hondarribia by Alfonso VIII of Castile (1203).
