Zaldibia

Zaldibia is a really interesting resting point on your way to the district of Larraitz. Surrounded by vibrant green hills and farms, this village offers many routes on foot, by bike…

The most outstanding buildings are the parish church of Santa Fe -a 16th century Gothic church– with a 13th century baptismal font kept inside, the San Saturnino hermitage (in the district of Saturdi) and the 17th century bridge at the entrance to the town.

On the last Sunday of October, there’s a festivity around a local product: mondeju, a delicious sausage obtained from local sheep.
