Fiesta:

San Isidro, the patron of the town, is celebrated on the 15th of May.

History:

Larrabetzu is one of the most outspoken villages in the Basque fight for independence. The city was a key location in the line of defense known as the Iron Belt. The hillsides here are criss-crossed with trenches and fortified bunkers designed to defend against the capture of Bilbao by the fascists in 1936. The efforts were unsuccessful, but the pro-Basque vision never waned. The city remains painted and plastered with graffiti and banners proclaiming independence for the Basque country and liberty for resistance members currently imprisoned.

The Road:

The camino turns right at the entrance to Larrabetzu, leaving the main road behind. In town it turns right and begins to follow a different road directly to Lezama.
