Would you like to explore our history? We invite you to visit the Argiñeta Necropolis, a series of sandstone graves and funerary stelas from the 9th century. Located in front of the hermitage of San Adrián, it is one of the most important funeral monuments in the Basque Autonomous Region, as it has 23 graves. In addition to this, near the hermitage of Santa Catalina we will find the Berriozabaleta Fountain, replica of one of Inca origin.

After this, we will go to Elorrio, villa with countless magical spots to visit and a historical heritage of enormous value. It stands out because of its unique medieval and modern heritage; in 1964 Elorrio was declared Medieval Heritage. It is very pleasant to walk on the streets full of palaces and ancestral houses made of stone and carved masonry from the 17th and 18th century.

To end up, we will have homemade lunch at a typical restaurant.

If you want to know more, join this activity before Thursday, 30th May.
