What to see

Every year, hundreds of visitors come to Plentzia attracted by its beautiful estuary, beach and port, as well as its picturesque old town.


This village, founded in 1299, still preserves some of its cultural heritage. Its picturesque medieval old quarter is a superb combination of popular maritime architecture and more refined and palatial buildings.

However, many believe that the town’s landmark monument is the footbridge of Plentzia, an arch bridge that connects the Bilbao metro station to the town centre, inviting visitors to discover its seafaring heritage.

Old Town

Unique in the Uribe region, the historic center of Plentzia invites you to walk through its streets to discover the monumental heritage, a vestige of the town’s past.

St. James’ Arch

The Arch of Santiago is part of the historical-architectural ensemble of the historic quarter of Plentzia, which has an impact on its historical value.

Church of Santa Maria Magdalena

Built between the 15th and early 16th centuries, the church of Santa Maria Magdalena is a stark Gothic hall church, with a rectangular floor plan and 3 nondomed naves separated by pillars.
