Sala Ondare Aretoa

The exhibition focuses on a selection of pieces from the Museo della Montagna's large collection of vinyl’s, which includes around one hundred and fifty mountain-themed items: cultural testimonies that photograph a particular world in a significant period of its history. Through a selection of this unique heritage - the object of a project of acquisition, study, cataloguing and digitisation - the exhibition follows, with an unprecedented interpretation, the evolution of both the communication strategies of the music industry and the taste for the representation of the mountain in the years 1970-2020.

Atrio Edificio Ensanche

This exhibition is not a social justice project or a feminist discourse, it is a way to make the female presence in mountain sports visible. A world that is almost always represented by a male figure. For Jon Martínez, the presence of women in the mountains is something normal, as he regularly goes climbing, mountaineering or ski mountaineering with them. From this coexistence and from observing how women are left in the background, the idea for this project was born to show that not only do they exist, but that, as well as being protagonists, some of them are also role models. It is about showing a truth and a reality that is unknown.

The natural area of wildland of Atxarte is located in the Urkiola Natural Park. A gorge in a valley squeezed between the Untzillaitz, Aitz Txiki and Alluitz mountains. Set among beeches, oaks, limestone and the river, there you will find the Chapel of Santo Cristo de Atxarte, the stone bridge and the remains of the old Atxarte mill. The ruins of the old Atxarte quarries can still be found among such beauty. These quarries exploited the rocky area where the Atxarte Climbing School is located for decades. A natural place where climbers opened the first routes more than 70 years ago, and today, people of all ages and conditions enjoy this landscape in the middle of nature.

Escaparates Casco Viejo

The ‘Mendian Gora’ exhibition is an original proposal by the EMMOA Foundation, to show the history of Basque mountaineering using the shop windows of shops that remain closed in the Old Quarter as windows into the world of mountains. It is an initiative that aims to promote local commerce, inviting the spectator to get to know, while strolling through the streets, the evolution of our mountaineering via a suggestive journey through the mountains of the world, which begins in Pagasarri, to finally reach the Himalayas.

Since more than a century ago, when the C.D. Bilbao organised the first popular excursions to the Pagasarri and Gorbeia mountains, mountaineering in Bizkaia has been extending its horizons to reach the summits of the highest and most distant mountains in the world, leaving a deep mark be on the walls and edges, glaciers and deserts of our planet. Throughout the brief photographic journey ‘Vizcaínos por las alturas’, EMMOA aims to offer a simple tribute to those who have been the protagonists of this exciting adventure.
