Porch and municipality of Biscay that adopts his current denomination as segregation of that of Gernika-Lumo. Placed to the N. of the province.

His capital-Kanpatxue - is in a small flatness, in central part. The relief in general is slightly mountainous being her area S.O. that of major heights that they range between 351 and 290 m.

It borders to the N. on the terms of Busturia and Gauteguiz de Arteaga, to S. with that of Forua, to E. with that of Gauteguiz de Arteaga and to O. with those of Busturia and Rigoitia.

Placed in laugh at Gernika, Murueta is a municipality that possesses scarce hereditary value, any he linked with the rural world of which is hereditary. Divided in three population nuclei, Goyerria, Larrabe and Konpontxua, is the last one the one that would show the category of capital.

The Parochial Church of Our Lady of Murueta dates back of middle to the sigo XIX and it is an eclectic building that he emphasizes for his cadenza neoclassic. It possesses plant of Greek cross on which one raises big dome ochavada reached by a tower - lantern that with his illuminates four flat vain ones of magisterial form the interior of the same one. Two important characteristics define it on the outside, on one hand the game of volumes and heights of all his bodies, and for other one his access to the feet finished off by a tower belfry of vain of half a point. This access is a big front porticada also in half a point on that a pediment is triangular proper of the most purist classicism. It possesses triple head and his centered plant, although the not only, it does peculiarly inside the parishes vizcaínas of small size, normally of plant deep.

Of 1914 it is the cemetery, work of neogothic air as they it define them vain of the central body of his chapel, in pointed arches. This one has rectangular plant with three bodies, head office more anticipated, double slope and pinnacles and stone cross in his part high.

Inside the hamlets we will emphasize Acurio Erdikoa, in Konpontxua, a copy framed in the typology of structure of posts, with rectangular plant, two waters and portico on right foot with inscription, dating the building in 1734. Continuous Goiengo with previous structure, although stone presents his low part constructed in reserving the framework lígneo for the top part. His flat portico rests on a nice ionic column. Of the same type but on wooden foot there would be the hamlet Moorland, with escutcheon in his front, and the hamlet Ghana.

Two mills, a foundry and one will weave conserve still Murueta like traces of his preindustrial past. The most out-standing would be mill of tide Mallugitza, type of very little common mill in Biscay and that it would use the force of the high tide and low tide to realize process of transformation of the cereal. The inscription stands out on the door of access, fixed which his building in 1796, although it is possibly that it already existed decades earlier. The mill Matordune, of rectangular plant, four apartments and a machinery of three axes, her foundry Olatxua, which possibly was alternating smelting functions and grinding, and it will be woven by Aurrera, of which only there survive the ruins of his high chimney of brick, they complete this paragraph hereditarily.
