Elvillar/Bilar

Lying on a flat area in the south of the historical territory of Alava, the town of Elvillar belongs to the Rioja Alavesa. El Soto, which is a tributary of Ebro River, flows through its limits.

 

We begin our journey in the town centre, where the 16th-century Gothic church of La Asunción prevails. We can admire a series of palace houses both in the main square and in the adjacent streets.

 

Prehistoric remains

Many prehistoric traces have been found in this area of Alava. In the vicinity of Elvillar, for example, we encounter the spectacular dolmens of "El Encinal" and La Chabola de la Hechicera. The latter was discovered in 1935 and its size and excellent state of preservation will impress those who come around. The nearby cave of Los Husos also accommodates a significant archaeological site.

 

The town celebrates the patron saint festival honouring San Roque on August 15th and 16th. A festive atmosphere reigns those days. On the eve of the festival, locals hold a coven in the surroundings of "La Chabola de la Hechicera" dolmen.
