Tourism destinations


Bakio is located in the historical territory of Bizkaia, in the Uribe region and is placed just between Mungia and Bermeo.

Burgoa, Garbola and Jata Mountains surround the municipality that, at the same time, hosts the River Zarraga and Ondarra Brook.

With regards to religious architecture, we should mention the parish church of Santa María de la Asunción and the parish church of Andra Mari, of Gothic style and placed in the foothill of Jata Mountain. Likewise, the hermitages of Santa Úrsula, San Cristóbal and Santa Catalina and Elexpuru and Ormatza Palaces, of Baroque style, are worth mentioning. After touring the cultural heritage of this seaside municipality, we’ll visit the Txakolingunea txakoli museum, part of the Basque coast line museum network and the Basque network of food and drink museums.

Exceptional coastal area

The coastal zone in Bakio is a privileged spot, surrounded by beaches, cliffs, creeks and promenades. The main one is San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, protected biotope, which shocks the visitor with its location on the sea. Askada and Jata viewpoints offer exceptional views of Bakio too. Celebrations in Bakio begin on March 19th, San José, when the new txakoli vintage is launched. On the other hand, the festival of Andra Mari takes place on August 15th and the patron saint festival takes place at the end of August, consecrated to San Juan Dolozak.
