Church of Santo Tomás de Olabarrieta


Tourism destinations


Sheltered by the Zeberio Valley, this village of the Arratia-Nervión region mixes a rural environment with magnificent natural areas.


Located just 20 kilometres from Bilbao, at the foot of Gorbeia Natural Park, Zeberio can be considered a green refuge for those escaping from the hustle and bustle of the city. Zeberio is composed by several neighbourhoods, among them Zubialde is the administrative centre.


The town is surrounded by the lands of the Gorbeia Natural Park, so it offers a wide range of routes and itineraries that make Zeberio a very interesting place to visit. Apart from its ecological beauty, Zeberio has a remarkable religious architecture consisting of churches and hermitages. The gothic-Renaissance church of Santo Tomás de Olabarrieta is an example of this brilliant heritage. This building from the 16th century has a amazing portico. On the other hand, the restored hermitage Andra Mari, located in Zeberiogane neighbourhood, completes its beauty with charming surroundings. Finally, we must mention the hermitage of San Antonio, a typical temple of the Way of St. James, which in Bizkaia are known as humilladeros


. Besides, if we visit Zeberio in the beginning of September we'll enjoy its patron saint festival, consecrated to San Antolín. Music and a festive atmosphere flood the municipality.
