Zalduondo

Zalduondo

Zalduondo is a little village located in the historical territory of Alava and belongs to Cuadrilla de Salvatierra.

 

This municipality has an interesting cultural, historic and artistic heritage. We will begin our trip in Lazarraga Palace, which dates back to the 16th century and, nowadays, hosting the Regional Ethnographic Museum. There we will find the area's culture and history through a wide variety of contents ranging from the fauna and flora to craftwork elements. Besides, the lordly house of Larrea, restored recently, is also worth visiting.

 

Churches, hermitages and medieval bridges

 

Zalduondo also has several churches and hermitages spread all over the municipality. The hermitage of the Espíritu Santo is located in San Adrián Cave and the hermitages of San Julián and Santa Basilisa are near Aistra, an ancient Roman village.

 

Once visited the historic heritage we should visit Zalduondo's medieval bridges, Zubizabal and Txaroste, and have a nice walk through the natural landscape.

 

The main festival in Zalduondo is the carnival, with typical characters as the Caldereros (tinkers) and the pupper Marquitos, around which traditional character carnivals revolve.
