Arantzazu

The municipality of Arantzazu is located in the middle of the Arratia-Nervión region, in the south of the historical territory of Bizkaia. The River Arratia flows through the municipality.

In the 14th century one of the two archpriests of Bizkaia lived and had a tribune in this municipality. Arantzazu, whose landscape is formed by smooth hills, hosts many historical buildings. Near the River Arratia we will find the beautiful parish church of San Pedro Apóstol, dating back to the 12th century, that shows an appealing Baroque altarpiece. Likewise, Zelaia Bridge, Errotalde Mill, Atutxa House's coat of arms and Vildolosa Bridge, in Arantzazugoiti, complete the historical heritage of Arantzazu.

With the rural and scattered planning, Arantzazu is the ideal place to get familiar with the popular Basque architecture thanks to its country houses and hermitages. It is also the perfect place to stay in a farm as it is close to Gorbeia Natural Park, a landmark in Basque mountaineering.

To finish, this municipality celebrates its patron saint festival on June 29th, consecrated to San Pedro Apóstol.
