Departure

Etxebarria

Etxebarria, located at the foot of Mount Kalamua (767 m) and crossed by the Urko river, occupies a natural area of ā€‹ā€‹narrow valleys and steep slopes that, at least since the Middle Ages, has represented one of the obligatory routes of transit to Gipuzkoa . Very little is known about the origins of the Etxebarria churchyard. Apparently, and towards the end of the 14th century, the lord of the solar house of Barroeta founded a parish dedicated to San AndrĆ©s ApĆ³stol on the land he owned, known as Cartagoitia. However, there is no mention of this fact in the documentation of the time, nor any vestige that shows the date of its foundation.
