Vizcaya - Bizkaia

It is built on the site of an old shrine where, legend has it, the Virgin Mary appeared at the beginning of the 16th century.

Bilbao residents have great devotion to the Virgin of this church, "La Amatxo". Work on this beautiful Gothic building began in 1519. The façade is in Renaissance style and has a large triumphal arch. Inside, special mention should be made of the Neo-Classical Main Altarpiece, where you can see the Camarín de la Virgen (Virgin's chamber). Its large, open belfry dates from the beginning of the 20th century.
