The Silken Palacio Uribarren is a hotel with all modern facilities built on the site of the former Uribarren Palace, an nineteenth-century monument where members of the royal family once slept, among them Queen Isabella II and her son Alfonso XII, while the empress Zita of Bourbon-Parma lived there when she was in exile.
The Silken Palacio Uribarren is in an unbeatable location with superb views of the sea, the slopes of Mount Lumentza and Mount Otoio, the town’s imposing Santa Maria Asuncion's Churche and the famous island of San Nicolás, which can be reached on foot at low tide. This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful spots on the Bay of Biscay.
