To discover What to see in Ezkirotz?

 

The houses of Ezkirotz, like those of Ilarratz, are generally stone constructions with their entrance doors with semicircular arches and plastered façades. The church of Santa Lucía serves as a parish church for both Ezkirotz and Ilarratz. It is a building of probable medieval origin but totally transformed in the 16th century. On the outside it has a marked horizontal character given the low height of the tower, located at the feet above the nave. The baptismal font located in the undercorum dates back to medieval times.

Curiosities

 

Ezkirotz possibly means, according to Basque language scholars, place owned by a person called 'Esquir-', De Esquir- + -oz. Esquir being an unidentified person's name and oz a suffix indicating property. Other curious translations and popular explanations are: 'frozen poplar, yellowish'. The name of the locality is related to the Basque voice ezki, which would mean 'poplar, white poplar, pobo, linden' and ezkai 'thyme'.
