She is the last population of the province Biscay, before entering Guipuzcoa on the oriental part of this one. Such a proximity situation, and the fact of belonging geographically to the basin of the river Deva, does that this locality includes, to many effects, in the Region of Low Deva, along with other municipalities of Guipúzcoa. With the nearby city of Éibar it forms the same urban plot. Ermua grew in the 60s and 70s to the shade of his neighbor and worked like a dormitory suburb of this one.

The municipality is composed by his city center and some quarters like those of Ongarai, San Pelayo, Onki zuri and Santa Ann. The quarter of The St Lawrence, which belongs to Zaldibar, is integrated urbanistically in Ermua. These quarters are very next to center and are part of the same downtown.
