Morga

Sheltered by a beautiful mountainous landscape, Morga is located in the West of Busturialdea region, in Bizkaia. This small town consists of ten rural neighbourhoods, being Andra Mari the most important one.

 

In Andra Mari neighbourhood's square we can begin our trip visiting the cute hermitage Nuestra Señora de los Remedios. During its rebuilding works in 1755 some funerary steles were discovered. From this point we will enjoy wonderful views, although if we lead to Altamira viewpoint, we will observe the whole Uribe region and Sollube Mountain (686 m).

 

From Andra Mari neighbourhood we can get to Gerekiz height, former connection between the river Gernika and the inner valleys, crossing Bizkargi mountain range (564 m). There stands the hermitage San Esteban, which as the rests of human bones and headstones found in 1770 prove, was used as a church in former times.

 

Going down Gerekiz height, we arrive to Meakaur neighbourhood and its interesting church of San Martín. Built in the 10th c., it was enlarged in 1580 and rebuilt some years later. The church consists of a nave with four altars, a surrounding atrium and a beautiful tower. Its Mannerist façade is awesome.

 

Festivities and fairs

 

Morga's cultural agenda is full of events and activities. The main festivities are: Santa Cruz (3rd May), San Juan (24th June), Santiago (25th July) and San Martín (11th November).

 

Moreover, on April's last Sunday takes place Expo Emú fair. Emus are the protagonists: we'll see the best specimens and taste emu meat, as well as Basque products such as honey, cheese, cider, txakoli, Basque cake, etc.
