Itinerary

Departure at 08:40hrs for half-day tour into the most traditional inner Basque Country. We will head towards the area of Durango, capital of the region with a historic medieval structure. This area is the start of the Gorbea Natural Park that still keeps flocks of sheep and traditional manufacture of cheese as one of its activities, the Urkiola natural park, with Wuthering heights, its splendid forests and legends of witches. Once past Durango, we enter the valley of Durango-Atxondo.

We will stop in Elorrio, characterized by the abundance and slenderness of its palaces and manor houses of stone and carved stonework. It is the first Historic-Artistic site of Biscay, considered officially in 1964. Among others it has 69 coats of arms of stone embedded in the walls of their mansions, the Town Hall, the Portal of Don Tello, the Argiñeta Necropolis, Temple of San Agustin de Etxebarria, etc...

Then we will arrive to Oñati, the most elegant and monumental village of the province of Gipuzkoa. After viewing some of these monuments like the oldest University of the Basque Country, we will head up a road between the cliffs to reach the most important sanctuary of
Gipuzkoa, the Shrine of Our Lady of Arantzazu, a compendium of the best contemporary Basque art, by the Franciscan order. Stop to visit and contemplate the building and magnificent views. Return at 14.00 to Bilbao.
