Discover unforgettable routes in Enkarterri

Immerse yourself in a unique natural paradise! Between the peaks and forests of the Enkarterri region there are an endless number of trails and more than two hundred caves, such as the Pozalagua (Karrantza) cave, located in the Armañón Natural Park.

Enkarterri is also the country of medieval towns like Balmaseda, the first town founded in Biscay, located in a narrow gorge bathed by the waters of the Kadagua river. A medieval bridge saves its waters and protects the old town, which traces a route full of churches, palaces and stately homes.

In Lanestosa, the second medieval town in the Enkarterri region, time seems to have stood still between its cobbled streets, popular houses with continuous balconies, the medieval bridge or the ancient lime kilns.
