Patrimony

Patrimony

There are historical-artistic elements of note in Zierbena, not least of which are: San Roman Parish, dating from the 12th century and rebuilt in 1880; the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora del Puerto, next to San Roman Parish; and San Ignacio de Loyola Hermitage. Although the Hermitage is the most modern built municipality, dating from 1907, it is the only one to survive the devastation of religious patrimony that took place during the first five years of the Second Spanish Republic (1931-1939), prior to the Spanish Civil War.

Of modern construction, and inaugurated 15th October 1997, the Town Hall building is located on the site of where the old school used to stand. Of note, is the sculpture standing over the Port which was created by sculptor Xebas Larrañaga in honour of seafaring men and women.
