Church of San Bartolomé de Olarte

The church of San Bartolomé de Olarte, in Orozko, is a simple temple with only one rectangular nave and square apse. In particular, the apse is covered by an excellent cross ribs vault with four tips and five keystones. The portico is another outstanding feature of this late Romanesque church, which dates back to the 17th Century, and the painted triptych depicting the Adoración de los Pastores, one of the main painting works in Bizkaia.
