Berriatua

Berriatua is located in the historical territory of Bizkaia, within the Lea-Artibai region and a few kilometres far from Ondarroa. The municipality is divided up into the town centre and the rural area, which comprises Mereludi, Asterrika and Magdalena neighbourhoods. The municipality stands out because of its wide historical heritage and its countryside walks and routes, that offer a magnificent view of the River Artibai.

 

We will begin our trip in the town centre, in the church of San Pedro, dating back to the 12th century and sitting on a small hill. We should visit the Pinta House, a palace house that dates back to the 18th century with remarkable paintings on the facade.

 

Wide historical heritage and beautiful sights

Entering Magdalena neighbourhood we can observe Aranzibia Tower. From there we will arrive in the hermitage of Magdalena, sitting on a hill with beautiful views. Nearby we will find the peculiar "Sarnapotzu" Well, famous for its hypothetical healing effects for skin diseases. Another spot worth visiting is the beautiful Lekoia Bekoa Farmhouse, recently restored and described as one of the main examples of Basque popular architecture.

 

The locality of Asterrika is the coastal part of the municipality. Situated between Mendexa and Ondarroa, it’s one of those privileged places where you can stroll along charming country paths with stunning sea views. We will visit the Gothic hermitage of San Lorenzo, dating back to the 15th century, very nice and well kept. Berriatua's patron saint festival takes place on May 9th, consecrated to San Gregorio, where the visitor will enjoy different activities.
