Villabona

Villabona is located in the historical territory of Gipuzkoa within the Tolosaldea region by the river Oria, although part of its land climbs up the Urdelar mountain (852m). The town is divided in two centres of population that kept their own personality despite being united since the 17th century. Most services are located in Villabona. It is easily accessible by train and by the road N-1, which is an important communication junction between Gipuzkoa, Álava and Navarre. The river Oria divides Zizurkil and Villabona and an ancient bridge with three spans connects both towns. Most buildings are of recent construction but some of them are interesting such as the 19th century town council of neo-classical style, which has the town's coat of arms on its facade. The parish church of Sagrado Corazón de Jesús is also an interesting building dating back to the beginning of the 20th century, as well as some country houses among which we will highlight Juanzurienea and Legar Barrena. Formed by many country houses connected by neighbouring roads, the rural-nature Amasa is located on the hillside of Urdelar. Downtown we will find the church of San Martin de Tours, which stands out as an imposing stone block. It was built between the 16th and 17th centuries and has a Latin cross ground plan, ribbed vaults and a tower with belfry. In the surroundings several country houses and the hermitage of Santa Cruz, which is said it was the first parish church in town, are brought together. From this spot we will be able to admire magnificent views of the valley. Besides, Villabona celebrates Santiago's patron Saint festival on July 25th. The Amasa neighbourhood also holds its own festivities: San Isidro¿s festival on May 15th and San Martín's festival on November 11th.
