Towns

Protected by the Codés Range and, Campezo-Kanpezu lies by the River Ega in the historical territory of Alava, in the Cuadrilla de Campezo-Montaña Alavesa region.

Exceptional buildings are scattered the length and the breadth of the five villages that form the town. In Santa Cruz de Campezo/Satikurutze Kanpezu, for instance, we have to mention the church of Asunción de Nuestra Señora, a Gothic sanctuary that dates back to the 14th century. It has a nave with four chapels and a magnificent facade. We can continue our visit in Antoñana, which was declared National Monument Complex of the Basque Country. The area accommodates typical medieval buildings, as well as towerhouses and lordly houses.

Izki Natural Park

After visiting those nice spots, the surroundings provide the opportunity to discover many natural treasures. Nearby we can find the Izki Natural Park, which holds a wide range of different landscapes. Altogether there are 15 well-marked routes of different levels of difficulty allowing us to discover every hidden spot of the Montaña Alavesa area.

Apart from those attractions, the municipality offers a wide variety of festivals and interesting traditions. The hermitage of Inbernalo, for instance, holds a "romeria" (local country fiesta usually connected to sanctuaries and hermitages) on the first Sunday of September, which coincides with the town's patron saint's day. It begins with a mass, and goes on with a flower offering and a procession around the hermitage.
