The Silken Palacio Uribarren, a modern hotel offering every comfort, stands on the site of the Palacio Uribarren, where members of the Spanish royal family, such as Queen Isabella II and her son, King Alfonso XII, stayed. The Palace was also occupied by Zita of Bourbon-Parma when she was living 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 imposing Santa María de la Asunción Basilica (home to the third largest carved gothic reredos in Spain after those in the cathedrals of Seville and Toledo), and the famous island of San Nicolás, which can be reached on foot at low tide. The combination of these features makes Lekeitio one of the most beautiful spots on the Basque coast.
