To discover What to see in Akerreta?

 

The small village of Akerreta is organized around the church. With well-kept and restored mountain-style houses, the masonry stone on its corners contrasts with the plaster on the rest of the façade. The parish church of La Transfiguración is of medieval origin, although its current appearance dates back to the 18th century, when the roof was built. The tower at the foot of the temple and the baptismal font are still preserved from the original medieval origin. The entrance to the church is through a simple door protected by a portico. The main altarpiece is Renaissance from the 16th century.
