The Vale of Sopuerta, strong medieval activity was a place submitted to , for his strategic place, leaving an important number of partisan towers to us. All of them have been much altered in the later centuries, and someone have come in deplorable the state. Garai supports a Gothic access, along with saeteras, supporting his primitive rear image. The Bridge, which threatens prompt ruin, has rich Renaissance decoration in the windows of the high plant.

In the Sopuerta vale Avellaneda is. Here meetings independent from those were celebrated of Gernika, and the representatives of the vale were summoned by one trumpet from the mount Kolitza. The Tower of Avellaneda is one square building, with battlements and windows enrejadas.

It was a jail of the area and they can still see the dungeons with shackles, where one was shutting the witches up before the bonfire was led to . From the grill of the prison the chapel is discerned of Angel, so that the executed persons could help - with the sight and I imagine than with few desire - to the religious offices. The tower is opened to the public and official acts are celebrated.

In front of the castle there was a tree with leafy glass under which they were assembling the junteros when it was nice. They say that there was one oak similar to that of Gernika, but trace does not survive already not the lightest . When the tower was reconstructed and one opened to the public it planted a shoot of the tree of Gernika, but a thunderstorm took her good will. At present in the House of Meetings of Avellaneda the Museum of the Encartaciones is .
