Towns

Ikaztegieta is located in the east of the historical territory of Gipuzkoa within the Tolosaldea region. The River Oria flows through the town that is surrounded by Aizkorri Mountain and Aralar Mountain Range. The church of San Lorenzo, which dates back to the 16th century, is one of Ikaztegieta's outstanding buildings. The church reveals elements of Basque Gothic style. What is more, the hermitage of Nuestra Señora del Pilar, which is sitting on the other side of the bridge to Ordizia, is another wonderful construction. The impressive landscape that spreads across the surrounding area offers a great opportunity to do some hiking and enjoy nature dotted with farmhouses. We can have a striking general view of the town from the nearby mountains.

 

The most important festivities take place at the beginning of August in honour of San Lorenzo. Besides, a cultural week is held at the end of November. The programme is packed with assorted events every year.
