Tourism destinations



Nabarniz is located in Bizkaia's inner region of Busturialdea, divided in six neighbourhoods of strong rural character. We begin our trip in Ikazurieta neighbourhood, where we'll visit Ondoro sepulchre cave.


From there we'll go to one of the best places in the municipality: Oma brook, whose course provokes awesome and cosy spots. Entering Elexalde, the municipality's main centre, we'll notice the church of Santa María de Gorritiz-Gorostizaga, great example of Basque Neo-classical architecture. Lekerika neighbourhood, on the other hand, hosts the Gothic Santiago hermitage, where weýll have magnificent views of Oiz Mountain (1,026 m).


Extraordinary natural viewpoint

This municipality, located in a beautiful natural landscape, has many routes that allow the discovery of its most hidden spots. Among them we'll mention Iluntzar Mountain, a balcony over Nabarniz that offers a great view of Urdaibai, as well as of the Oka River's valley, Oma and Basondo holm oak woods and facing Sollube Mountain.


Nabarniz celebrates its patron saint festival on September 8th and its main event is the competition between stone-dragging horses.
