Arteleku was a public art centre under the auspices of the Culture Department of the Regional Government of Gipuzkoa. It was based in the Loiola district on the outskirts of San Sebastian (about 2 km from the city centre). It occupied an industrial building that formerly was a fodder store and later became a warehouse for storing electric material. In 1987 it was inaugurated as an art centre after most of the old facilities had been refurbished. And in 1992, the part of the building which had not been previously rebuilt (NW wing) was renewed. Arteleku ceased its activities in 2014.
