Tourism destinations



Lezama, in the Txorierri valley, is a low-lying area bordered by two mountainous areas but well-connected to the Butrón and Nervión valleys. There are many ancestral houses and lordly towers that bear witness to its medieval origins; among the oldest ones we'd like to mention Basabil y Arechavaleta house and Oxangoiti ancestral house. Entering the village we'll visit the elegant church of Santa María, which dates back to the 13th century, with a beautiful facade and five altarpieces.


Near the church we'll notice Lezama tower, built in the 14th century. Moreover, because of the village's location on the foothill of Ganguren range, we will be able to enjoy one of the best views in Bizkaia.


Likewise Lezama has a horse-riding club, an excellent place to practice horse riding in a magnificent natural landscape. Lezama's main festival takes place on September 8, a good day to visit the village and enjoy its festive atmosphere.
