Cultural Heritage

The Church of San Miguel de Elexabeitia was built at the end of the Middle Ages, at the end of the 15th or the beginning of the 16th century. The main nave dates back to that period and has a Gothic tabernacle and a wooden choir at the rear. Later on, in 1621, the belfry was added above the main entrance. And the cover was built in the Baroque style's climax. Both elements were built in wood, the main characteristic of this monument. The temple keeps two polychrome wood images of San Miguel: one of them of Gothic style and the other one of Romanesque type. Likewise, there is an image of the Virgin, this one Romanesque too.
