Basque open dictionary

Welcome to the largest Basque educational and research project on the Internet. This open and editable dictionary aims to offer a tool where, on the one hand, users broaden knowledge about the different meanings that each of the words and expressions of Basque can adopt. And, on the other hand, give the same community the ability to expand the database with new words, unknown or unregistered, or expand the different meanings that can adopt the existing words. For identical words and according to which country of the world we move, it is very frequent to find completely different uses, that is why, once the official definition is mentioned, the dictionary allows users to expand it with new meanings or nuances. In short, a dictionary edited by users and for users. Daily among all the meanings uploaded by users will select one of them as word, expression or theme of the day. This meaning will appear on the home page just after this presentation for at least 24 hours. Finally, we have made the project extensible to words from other languages ??or disciplines, you can access these dictionaries through the drop-down that appears next to the search box and the operation is identical to the main dictionary. Hoping that the use of the dictionary is to his liking we say goodbye.

I'm Spanish speaking but I think it literally translates as "bird place" although in a building I think it would come to be an attic or similar is precisely what I was looking for

In Navarre there is a Valley called Guesálaz/Gesalaz, and the pass the Salado River, there is also a salinas, Salinas de Oro. Here, the meaning seems to be the opposite: salt water. The same thing I found in the seaside resort of Zestoa. Apparently, in its origin, medicinal water, salts, was found and was put into operation on a source of the hamlet of Gesalza. I don't know if you have any explanation for these shapes apparently contrary to the expected sense. I write from a tablet that will not let me do so in Basque.
