At Bodega Otazu the art complements the wine, and the wine complements the art. Wine tourists can admire the extraordinary masterpieces of art, a reflection of its origins and symbols of a culture that has evolved in one of the most beautiful places that can be known and where wine is a crucial part of it.
 
Bodega Otazu also includes a feudal estate from the Middle Ages: Señorío de Otazu. Nowadays, some buildings on this property have managed to withstand the passing of time, after so many centuries of existence:
1. The Romanian Church of San Esteban from the 12th Century, located in the heart of the Señorío de Otazu, part of the original St James´s Way. It was the first building in this spectacular natural scenery and inside the church, there is a magnificent altarpiece in plateresque style from the 16th Century.
2. The Defense Tower from the 14th Century was one amongst many other medieval defence towers in Sierra of Etxauri and in the surroundings of Pamplona.
3. The Palace of Otazu from the 16th Century. In 1351, it was the residence of Gil García de Yániz, señor de Otazu, lieutenant of the Governor of Navarra.
