Under the shelter of Izazpi Mountain (967m), Ezkio-Itsaso is located in the Alto-Urola region in the historical territory of Gipuzkoa, between Zumarraga and Beasain. Three main towns form the area: Ezkio, Itsaso and the Santa Lutzi-Anduaga neighbourhood, which is surrounded by many farmhouses forming a beautiful landscape. Thus, the rural atmosphere is palpable both in Ezkio and Itsaso.

 

The urban area of Ezkio is home to a cross near the Apaiztegi farmhouse and the church of San Miguel Arcángel from the 14th century, with a Gothic-style door and three naves.

 

The surroundings of Ezkio

The open field of Anduaga is an interesting place. The story goes that some people saw the Virgin Mary there in the '30s and numerous onlookers used to gather in that place in order to be able to see her. Whoever visits the site will see a cross that is surrounded by religious images.

 

To put an end to the visit, nothing better than to visit the Igartubeiti Farmhouse Museum, great exponent of the Basque architecture of wood from the 16th and 17th centuries, which will give us the chance to get know the custom and traditions of our ancestors.
