The ancient town hall and the neoclassic house opposite to the parochial church, both in the Garai quarter (see), are significant buildings, more for his size that for his quality constructive, but they deserve a critique. The first one is a building constructed in 1901 with certain classical air and that had in origin the school function. Of major interest it is the neoclassic house nearby, that although it continues the structure of this type of buildings it removes from the typical hamlet to turn already into a town house slightly more refined than those of farming.

The hamlet stands out exceedingly for his big number, it is not of to miss due to the type of poblamiento of the porch, articulated concerning districts and of dispersed ambience. We can speak of hamlet Arratza in the ambience of the castle of Break-in. It is a building rectangular to two waters with spurs in his central front, which divides in first floor of rough stone and Superior with framework of wood filling of slag and brick and byline of the XVIIIth century. In Basaldu quarter (see) we have Basaldu-Erdikoa, also of the century XVIII, rectangular and to two waters. In Igartua (see), to emphasize set of six hamlets that shape the quarter, between that Konsolone, Palace and Olakoetxe stands out. In Gorordo (see) there is two interesting copies: Landaluze, with stove in the outskirts and Santune, of portico typology arquitrabado. In Ugarte (see) Zugasti stands out, of the XVIIIth century and Moorland that preserves elements Gothic - Renaissance man. In Sertutxa (see) we have the hamlet Lugarrieta that repeats the scheme of the buildings of the XVIIIth century of the area. In Garai (see) it is where more hamlets concentrate like Urrustiñe, Bengoetxe, Urrutxu, Garai and Barberu-Zarrene.

The industries previous to the nineteenth-century industrial explosion are well represented with several hydraulic mills, not in vain the river Break-in articulates part of the municipal territory. In the set of castle we have remains of the foundry and mill Break-in, the first one ruinous and with double arcade like the only trace of his past and second preserving his facilities although rendered useless. The mill Endetza is in Libarona (see) and is of rectangular plant to two waters with machinery of double axis in functioning. In Ugarte quarter (see) two copies survive, Leuxarrekoerrota in the very good state and with associate prey of sillarejo, and Birlekoerrota, like the previous one also with prey nearby, although at present it is in desuetude. Finally to quote mill Toziña, of rectangular plant and off-center portico, his facilities are in the bad state. (fte CHESTNUT-COLORED Manu GARCÍA (2006)
