Ereño

Ereño is a municipality of mountainous relief located in the historical territory of Bizkaia, between Gernika-Lumo and Lekeitio. Ereño is famous because of its marble and quarry-exploitation practised in the village from its very beginning.

 

As we go into urban area, we will find the village's main historic building: the beautiful church of San Miguel, built on a Gothic-renaissance base.

 

Magnificent outlook of Bizkaia

Those loving magnificent views must climb up to the hermitage of San Miguel de Ereñozar, 448m above the sea level. From there they will enjoy beautiful views of Gorbeia Mountain, Duranguesado Valley, the River of Mundaka, its port, coastal towns such as Ea and Ibarrangelua. And, in the background, the Bay of Biscay. All this is worth visiting. In Busterrigane we will find a closed cave leading to Geranda Hill; in its surroundings we will find the peculiar "Poto" cave.

 

Ereño's patron Saint festival takes place on September 30th, consecrated to San Miguel.
