SORALUZE: traces of dolmens

The municipality of Soraluze-Placencia de las Armas is surrounded by the characteristic mountains of our area. There are wonderful strolls to be enjoyed that connect a large number of farmhouses and chapels of authentic rural character. A delight for nature lovers.

The urban area contains noteworthy pieces of architectural heritage: The Church of Santa María la Real with its beautiful portico, which combines Renaissance and baroque motifs, and the fascinating Houses of Arregigaraikua, Ormaetxea, Solagüen, Jauregi, Mendikute or Torrea House, and the outstanding baroque style Town Hall.

The Dolmen Route

It has an especial importance The Dolmen Route, a 20 kilometre trail that passes through Elgoibar and Soraluze. Standing among dolmens and bural mounds, look out over the Bay of Biscay coast from this magnificent natural vantage point.
