Gordexola is a vale in full development that offers a big quality of life respecting his environmental wealth and surrounded with a beautiful landscape environment.

The term Gordexola comes from an expression of the XV.th century “Gordo ” means plane or plain and “Xola ” it means hut or foundry, this way the interpretation of the word would be “La small hut of plain or of the Foundry of the plain ”.

One of the principal characteristics of Gordexola, is her plenty of elements of interest, as there are, hamlets, towers, palaces, towns, churches and chapels... all this surrounded with one beautiful scenery of quite well preserved forests

The Houses - towers are elementary cubic constructions, of extreme simplicity, which they stand out on a mountains fund. His features more out-standing are a dignity, cleanliness of volumes and austerity in all that to the decoration, with the exception of the flaming shields that shine in his fronts. The most out-standing are the Tower of Oxirando, that of Ibargüen, that of Largatxa and that of Zubiete-Oribai

The towns are big constructions realized by the Indians, persons who having been born in Gordexola, went to the Americas to do fortune, and once back, they were constructing luxurious mansions. They emphasize Town Cuba, Town Bilbao, Town José, Town Arechavaleta

Palace Uriarte: of which only the drawer of his fronts stays classicists of ends of the XVIIIth. And opposite to the palace, the exaggerated one chapel constructed by the owners of that one, the Uriarte: paraphrasing the poet, one was a chapel to a shield given. Chapel open, contemporary of the palace, and so classical as that one, one of the most beautiful constructions of this type and period.

The Gordexola gastronomy is very wide and varied, but between his products craftsmen emphasize especially his sausages and blood sausages; his txakoli; his bread; and his typical nogada. (ftes. to see links)
