Stage five

Very briefly, from Lekeitio to Elanchobe, again over the hills, passing through Itzasper, Ea and Natxitua. All but the last are little fishing villages, each with its port, its beach, and it' surprisingly large church, often of unusual design. In Lekeitio it has spectacular flying buttresses (photos in camera, sorry). Ea has a series of arched stone bridges over the last few hundred yards of river, bordered by brightly coloured houses with flowers.

Now in Gernika, famous for a symbolic tree, an abstract painting and a nasty bit of work by the Nationalists during the war. No time to tell the story, but Google is your friend.
