What to see in Alava

Discover Artziniega, a hidden gem in the heart of the Basque Country surrounded by exuberant nature and historical heritage that is palpable in all its cobblestone streets.
Urkabustaiz is a small, charming town with a well-preserved historic centre.
In the southern section of town, on the flanks of a small hill that can be reached by dirt path, you will find the Nuestra Señora de la Peña hermitage, which is one of the Basque Country’s most special.
When you reach Leza, you will be greeted by beautiful buildings that rise up from its streets. The town centre maintains a multitude of renaissance-style homes.
The medieval town of Laguardia is the capital of Rioja Alavesa. It was founded in the 10th century to defend the Kingdom of Navarre, and its medieval layout remains nearly intact, making a stroll down its cobblestone streets, along its walls, and past emblazoned houses a true trip back in time.
This is where an imposing titanium building coexists alongside a Baroque church that looks like a castle. From the San Vicente hermitage, you can glimpse the perfect view of Elciego, a sea of vineyards, and Laguardia against a Cantabrian sierra backdrop.
