The church of Santa Maria was built on a large rock and stands solemnly in the old part of the town. It is Gothic in style, built in 1462 and renovated in the 18th and 19th centuries. The church has windows with flamboyant tracery. Along with them, the pinnacles and the rose window also stand out on the façade. Standing on the river bank and looking upwards, you can see the large arches under the church, which were once used to protect ships.
The most curious elements are to be found above the church, known as “Kortxeleko mamuak”. They are statues in the Burgundian style, representing a court from the Middle Ages. Next to them is “Leokadi”, who, according to legend, was a woman who lived in the old part of the city and was turned to stone as a result of a punishment.
