From Karrantza to Zierbena in five steps
Karrantza, Trucíos, Muskiz, Gallarta and Zierbena, from the mountains to the sea straight through the mines.
The surprisingly beautiful heart of Karrantza is to be found around the Concha neighbourhood, where you can find large houses of “indianos”(colloquial name for the Spanish emigrant in America who returned enriched), such as the Chalet Hernáiz, its proximity to the limestone massifs and megalithic routes, and a sanctuary for beef such as Casa Garras.
On leaving the BI-630 main road, we pass near the surprising Dolomite Museum, the tourist information office and a spa.
We head northeast to climb La Escrita and admire the scenery. We head down towards Bilbao and stop in Trucíos, with its charming Gothic church of San Pedro de Romaña. Let’s enjoy the silence.
We continue towards Gallarta through mining land.
In Gallarta we take the N-634 towards the beach of La Arena, crossing under the A-8 and, at the roundabout in Kardeo, we opt for the branch of the old N-639 that crosses the district of San Román, passes through the Valle crossroads and ends at the charming Zierbena pass.
