Alegia

CONTENTS

By the Oria River

Near Tolosa, to which it was joined until the beginning of the 17th century, Alegia Alegia also borders on the villages of Albiztur, Orendain, Altzo, and Ikaztegieta. The village was formerly known as “Alegría de Oria” (Oria’s Joy) and it has its present name since the decade of the 80s.

The Old Quarter could be an interesting way of starting a visit to Alegia

The Old Quarter could be an interesting way of starting a visit to Alegia. Walking through these streets, one realizes that it is curiously shaped as a half moon, coinciding with the River Oria course.
The Town Hall is an important part of the historic and cultural heritage of the village. It was originally built in Baroque style and it has been later restored and rebuilt, although the main façade has remained unchanged. Among the religious buildings, we should stand out the Parish Church of San Juan Bautista, whose features look similar to the Gothic and Neo-Gothic characteristics. The present look is the result of different extensions in different centuries.
Another emblematic place in this village is the bridge known as “Zubi-Zaharra”. The structure has need reconstruction works due to the serious damages it suffered during the 1983 floods.
The wealth of this village is completed with an entertaining cultural calendar, with outstanding patron festivities in the middle of July, devoted to Our Lady of El Carmen. Moreover, we should also mention a rooted tradition known as “Zahagiardo”. In the village’s square, the neighbours gather in an early-evening meal on the most special days of the year.
