Tourism destinations


Bathed by the Bay of Biscay, Muskiz is located in the historical territory of Bizkaia, in the Greater Bilbao (Encartaciones), and lies on the valley of the river Barbadún.

The coastal place offers an unbelievable landscape. With its extensive kilometres of coast where we will remark La Arena Beach and the abrupt cliffs, Muskiz provides visitors with real natural pleasures such as the Itsaslur park, a beautiful promenade along the cliffs that connects coastal Kobarón and Pobeña.

This coastal municipality offers many charming and interesting spots. In fact, its cultural heritage is wide and rich, full of lordly buildings. Muñatones castle is a marvellous Middle Age building that will take the visitor to those times. The compound, formed by a castle, a palace and a hermitage, was declared Historical Monument in 1944.

Iron works El Pobal, interesting historical monuments

We'll carry on visiting the iron works El Pobal, whose structure bears witness of a rich history. It dates back to the 16th century and keeps typical tools related to iron industry. Just beside we'll visit the homonym tower house. Its main facade presents a semi-circular door and the Quadra lineage's coat of arms.

Muskiz offers a wide festive variety all through the year. The patron Saint festival takes place in June, consecrated to San Juan. On the other hand its Carnival, held in February, is also very famous. Finally, we'd like to mention the livestock fair organised in September, very important in the area.
