Amorebieta-Etxano

A town through which many people pass, Amorebieta-Etxano is in an unparalleled location with views of the mountains around it, such as Bizkargi and Urrimendi. Its rather abrupt terrain is also crossed by the river Ibaizabal.

Several neighbourhoods form the municipality and all of them host different features of the village's historical heritage. We will begin our visit in Amorebieta-Etxano's town centre, where we will see the church of Santa María de Asunción, which stands out because of its main altarpiece. Once visited Cancelada Palace, a beautiful Neo-classical building, we will arrive in Bernagoitia neighbourhood with its church of San Miguel and the Berna Tower, which keeps medieval remains. Likewise, we can enjoy beautiful views of the valley and its surrounding mountains.

Entering San Antonio neighbourhood we will be astonished by the hermitage of San Miguel de Dudea, one of the nicest in the municipality. The area of Larrea, on the other hand, stands out because of the convento of Larrea and López Palace, a beautiful Neo-classical building. Finally, we will get to Etxano and Boroa. Both are remarkable because of their rural character and both form quiet and nice areas with relaxing walks offering marvellous views of Oiz and Belatxikieta mountains.

Amorebieta-Etxano holds many festivities all through the year but its patron saint festival takes place in the middle of July, consecrated to the Virgen del Carmen.
