Lanciego/Lantziego

The municipality is located in the south of Alava and belongs to Cuadrilla de Laguardia-Rioja Alavesa. Lanciego-Lantziego borders on the Autonomous Region of La Rioja. Town of emblazoned houses and palaces, we'll begin our visit with the church devoted to San Acisclo and Santa Victoria; Renaissance sanctuary at first, with neo-classic extensions. Likewise, the hermitage of Nuestra Señora del Campo should be visited. With regard to Lanciego-Lantziego's civil architecture, the abundance of renaissance and baroque buildings makes of its old part the most interesting spot in the Rioja Alavesa. We'd like to mention the palace house of the marchioness of Armendariz, nowadays operating as Town Hall. Mantible Roman Bridge Another essential visit is 5km from the urban area, in the Assa neighbourhood to be precise. On its outskirts we will find the remains of the Mantible Bridge, a superb building work that was used as a junction of communication to connect both banks of the River Ebro. This colossal building work was 164-m long and 30-m high made of half-point seven arches, despite just two of them are still standing. As for the calendar of festivities, Lanciego/Lantziego celebrates its festivities on November 17th paying tribute to San Acisclo and Santa Victoria.
