MY HOMETOWN: ARTAZU
I live in Burlada, in the centre of Navarre and in the north of theSpain. But I'm going to talk about my village
, near Puente laReina, in centre of Navarra and in the north Spain. I like my villageArtazu and, if is more or less 38kilometres from Burlada.My father was born in Artazu and my grandparents lived there. Nowthe aunt of my father lives in Artazu. Before, I travelled allweekends and holidays, but now I travel one day per month. InSeptember I go to the harvest with my uncles, my cousins, myparents and my sister. That’s why I’m going to talk about it.It is a small town in the mountains. There is a lot of vegetation, has many orchards andmany vineyards. The houses are very big and the stables are on the ground floor. Thehouses are very old too, made of stones with red roofs and vegetable gardens.The population of Artazu is around 120 people. During the summer the population isaround 300 people.The holiday of Artazu is from15th of August to 17th of Augustand the day of the wine, harvestis in 10th September.Artazu has some squares, a townhall, church, a bar, a sweets shop,a pediment and a small park.Also has two wineries, one is oldand the other is new. The newone is Artadi and my father builtit in 2003. It has three ruralhomes. Artazu doesn't have aschool and young children go toschool by bus to Puente la Reinaand adolescents go to high school in Estella. Artazu doesn't have shops and the peoplego to buy to Puente la Reina and to Pamplona. Next to Artazu is the river Arga.The summer weather in Artazu is good, around 25º C, the fall and spring are beautiful,but in winter it's cold.Finally, I’m going to describe my house: It’s very big and it has four floors.On the basement is the winery. On the ground floor there is an entry. On the first floorwe have got a kitchen, a dinning room, a bathroom, a ladder and two bedrooms. On thesecond floor are four bedrooms and a balcony.And this is more-less everything about my village and my house...
