Hotel

Hotel in Mungia
The Urgoiti Palace is a boutique hotel, with golf course, Pitch&Putt, heated pool, gourmet restaurant and bistro. It is very well located near to Bilbao Airport, just 5 min away, and only 15 minutes from the center of Bilbao and the Basque Coast beaches.

If we were admired by its lines and architecture without knowing its past, once we get to know its history, we will take off our hats to this example of tenacity. This original palace was built in Galdakao in the seventeenth century, and it had to be dismantled stone by stone in 1968 and rebuilt between 2004 and 2005 in Laukariz after a laborious job transfer, sorting and cataloging the stones that made up the original palace.

It has 43 comfortable rooms, all of them featuring spaciousness, luminosity and overlooking the golf course and the surrounding landscape.

Relaxation lovers can visit the gym, enjoy a swim in the heated outdoor terrace or improve your golf swing in the Pitch & Putt course.

It also offers a varied cuisine: seasonal menu and different menus in the Harria restaurant, as well as a more informal Bistro menu, which can be enjoyed in the cafeteria and on the pleasant outdoor terrace.

The Urgoiti Palace Hotel has different private dining halls for business meals, family celebrations or any private meeting.

Our great experience in hosting major events such as weddings, reunions, communions, birthday parties, etc.. is also to be noticed.

 

HISTORY

The Urgoiti Palace, also known as the Gallo or Adán de Yarza Palace, was built by Don Miguel Vélez de Larrea at the end of the seventeenth century.

Its strategic location in Galdakao, which dominated the roads of Arratia and Zornotza, made the palace the scenario for very important events in the history of Bizkaia and the meeting place for illustrious guests, among which is the Infante Don Carlos de Borbón, pretender to the throne and rival of Elizabeth II, who spent the night here on several occasions.

The properties of the family Vélez de Larrea were very important, but the family of his wife Jacinta Adán de Yarza was even more prosperous.

The new formed marriage Adán de Yarza ordered the building of the Zubieta Palace in Lekeitio. These two Barroque palaces are the two perfect examples of the palace architecture of Biscay.

Many members of the Adán de Yarza famioly lived in these palaces or in the towers before them, as Rodrigo Adam Yarza mayor of the jurisdiction of Biscay since 1338.

In the Middle Ages this family took part in the Banderizos wars, fighting in favor of the Oñacinos.

Another anecdote about the family is about Pedro Adán de Yarza, who was among the mayors of Bizkaia negotiating with the King under the famous Gernika tree the first order of the Basque jurisdiction of 1342. Over time, Mario Adán de Yarza came to this very same place to the General Meeting of April 1877 as Deputy General of Biscay, to reject the law abolishing the Jurisdictions, which dissolved the Provincial Council of Bizkaia.

Rodrigo Rey Adam Yarza was rhe former secretary of the Catholic Monarchs since 1487, president of the Real Property, the West Indies and the Royal Council and also took part in the conquest of Granada , Seville or in the defense of San Sebastián. It was also Admiral and Commander in chief of the coast of Biscay, Guipúzcoa, Asturias and Galicia to Portugal. Antonio Navarro de Larreategui (1.554 – 1.624) changed his name to Adán de Yarza and was secretary of King Philip III, secretary of the royal archives of Simancas and secretary of the Prince Manuel Filiberto of Savoy, as well as Lord Mayor of Logroño Arcos and major of Lekeitio like all his predecessors.
Carlos Yarza Adam (1812 – 1863) is also to be mentioned here, liberal politician, mayor of Bilbao and Bizkaia Provincial Council, who put the same effort in Bilbao plant trees as in the garden of the Zubieta Palace. Mario Yarza Adam (1846 – 1920) was also Deputy General of Bizkaia and shared his father’s passion for botany.He did a first test in the gardens of the Palace Zubieta and subsequently took part in the design of the Urgoiti Palace gardens, introducing and beginning of industrial exploitation of the Radiata Monterrey pine or the Insignis pine. This species was named green gold thanks to the reforestation of the mountains of Biscay, damaged by long periods of exploitation, and the wealth that generated for the rural land.

After three centuries, it must be consideres exceptional that the Zubieta and the Urgoiti properties are still in the hands on the same family.

In modern times (1968),the Urgoiti Palace was expropriated and demolished for the construction of the Bilbao-Behobia motorway. José María Solano Gil– Delgado Adan de Yarza (1927- 1998), owner of the palace, decided to dismantle it stone by stone, and it was not until 2004 and 2005 when it was rebuilt in its present location between Bilbao and Bermeo. As the stones moved their positions because of the floods of 1983, a long process of cataloging with the most advanced techniques of archeology was needed to find the place that originally occupied.

This reconstruction is really exemplar, maintaining the style and original design Urgoiti Palace, so that we can still enjoy this wonderful jewel of palace architecture of Biscay.
