Igorre

Located in an outstanding spot between the Urkiola and Gorbeia nature parks, Igorre offers the chance to try a host of experiences and routes in its immediate area. It also has areas of natural interest to further add to the beautiful landscape of this valley, a land of legend and mythological characters.

 

Sheltered by Mandola and Aramotz Mountains, among others, Igorre is flown through by the river Arratia, which later joins with river Indusi. Igorre consists of seven neighbourhoods, being Elexalde the main one. There we must mention the church of Santa María, which keeps several altarpieces in different styles. Furthermore, the different neighbourhoods host also interesting buildings.

 

For instance, in Santa Lucía we can visit the medieval hermitage of San Cristóbal de Elgezua, in Late-Romanesque style. This temple, of rectangular design, is surrounded by green areas and country houses. Inside we can admire and neogothic altarpiece dating from the 16th c. Finally, Igorre's patron saint festival is consecrated to San Antonio in the middle of June, and the village is full of popular activities.
