Tourism destinations



Arakaldo is located on the border between Bizkaia and Alava, on the right bank of the River Nervión. Nowadays it is the municipality with the lowest population in Bizkaia and is divided up into several rural neighbourhoods.


Arakaldo stands out for the lovely square in the town centre, where the Town Hall is situated, as well as for the majestic Santa Marina Church and its impressive portico.


Bizkaia's Araklado is to be found in a basically rural setting on the hillside of Unzueta Mountain (766 m), which offers amazing views and quiet and relaxing routes through the natural surroundings.


Arakaldo's patron saint festival takes place on July 16th in honour of Santa Marina.
