Orexa

This cosy town is located in the historical territory of Gipuzkoa within the Tolosaldea region. It is situated in a beautiful setting encompassed by green mountains, 12km from Tolosa, adjoining Navarre. Tourists could start our visit going for a walk around Orexa's town centre and admiring its charming buildings. The town, of rural nature, has a couple of interesting constructions in the town square: the Neo-classical Town Hall, made of stone and, it has four arches on its main facade; and the parish church of Santa Cruz with a rectangular plan and wonderful capitals, which is home to a Renaissance retable. The old quarter has many beautiful country houses such as Iriarte, where the famous Basque poet Orixe, prominent figure of Basque literature, was born. As Orexa is encompassed in a beautiful natural environment, tourists will enjoy marvellous panoramic views. If we walk up the hill, we will make out numerous farmhouses spread across the landscape, as well as Aralar Mountain Range, Ernio Mountain (1,075m) and the valley of Araxes. The town is a suitable place to have a rest and enjoy nature.
