PALACES AND MANSIONS

Possibly what Elorrio is best known for. Located both in the heart of the town and the surroundings, these elegant buildings of different architectural styles will guide your journey into the past.

BASÍLICA DE LA PURÍSIMA CONCEPCIÓN

A spectacular testament to the clash between the Gothic and the Renaissance periods, it also boasts elements from other periods in history. Worth mentioning are its Baroque “retablo”, the early 20th century altarpiece in memory of Valentín de Berrio-Otxoa, and the Giralda-like bell tower.

 

NECROPOLIS OF ARGIÑETA

The Basque Country’s most important mediaeval funerary ensemble: 23 sarcophagi and five stelae dating back to the 7th to 9th centuries. Two stelae contain the oldest inscriptions known in Bizkaia’s Christianity.

BERRIOZABALETA WELL

Built in the 19th century, in the Incan style, by a local man with a fortune he amassed in Peru. It can be found in Berriozabaleta, facing the Urkiola mountainside. Its fountain, washing place, slab, benches and hemicycle render this monument noteworthy.
