A journey through the Encartaciones: Crossroads


House-Tower of Bolunburu

The Bolunburu area of Zalla is located on a bend on the left bank of the river Cadagua.

The track that takes us there is located in part on the old Bilbao-Balmaseda royal road, whose cobblestones are visible close to the church. The site is made up of a tower-house, a foundry, a mill and the small church of Santa Ana. This church was built in the post-mediaeval period in 1612. Its layout is rectangular, with a gable roof and it was built using stonework and masonry. Its archaeological value lies in the burial sites around it.

The tower-house at Bolunburu, from the Late Middle Ages, has interior beam work in a good state of repair.
