    If you have stayed in the IISJ Residence, you might have been in many rooms, including the Professors' apartment or the private suites of IISJ Directors. Yet, I bet you haven't had a chance to enter the most mysterious room of the building - the chapel located in the study/conference room on the first floor, called by some students 'The Red Room' after its wallcovering. The chapel door is always locked and attracts attention of eyes tired of gazing at monitors by hardworking writers. Consequently, and to no surprise, such inaccessibility leads overloaded brains of socio-legal scholars to put forwards spiritist arguments. And it seems that acoustics of the Residence do not help to definitively falsify existence of a phantom. Sticking to empirical facts, the chapel became a lumber room and awaits its rediscovery.

    Not far away from the Residence there is a passage that not many of us might have discovered. It connects two parts of Oñati, is approximately 333 meters long and partially goes in a tunnel. Officially it is called Lazarraga Kalea but I prefer to refer to it as a secret passage. It has beautiful pergola roof  foliage at the east exit. You can use it to go for a Wednesday pintxopote to San Lorentzo part of the town, if you have already been to all the bars in the center.
