Oyón-Oion

Oyón-Oion is located in the historical territory of Alava, within Cuadrilla Laguardia-Rioja Alavesa and very close to Navarre and La Rioja. Formed by Barriobusto, Labraza and Oyon-Oion, the latest of the three towns has the major number of services.

 

Lordly houses such as the Marqués del Puerto and the Conde de Bureta are spread all over the municipality. Likewise, weýd like to mention the parish church of the Asunción, famous because of its Gothic-renaissance facade that dates back to the 15th-16th centuries. Moreover its tower, known as "Giraldon," is very peculiar.

 

Labraza and Barriobusto

 

As regards Labraza, its walls are outstanding. Located up on a hill, this small town was created in the Middle Ages. The narrow streets will lead us to the church of San Miguel, which was part of the defence grounds. To sum up, Barriobusto also has houses with coat or arms and its church is the most modern in the whole Rioja Alavesa, dating from the 19th century.

 

El Katxi from Oyón-Oion

El Katxi is a three centuries old multicoloured character that plays an important role within the main local feasts, both in the patron saints' festival consacrated to San Vicente and San Anastasio- in January 22nd and during the feasts taking place in the last weekend in August. Every year takes place the same celebration: el Katxi rolls around on the church's portico before the mass, while the town's flag is flown above him. This event is repeated at the town hall. In the feasts taking place in August, we can enjoy the traditional "descent of el Katxi".
