Elorrio lies at the foot of Mount Urdalaitz, providing the opportunity to enjoy Basque cuisine in all its splendor. As in every town in Biscay, barbecued meats are very common when it comes times to eat in Elorrio. Pork is used to make different kinds of embutidos, including buzkantza, a traditional type of blood sausage which is practically no longer made in the present day. The town’s markets receive fresh fish from the northern coast, making it possible to find a good offering of seafood products on the menus of its restaurants. There is also a lot of farming in Elorrio. In the past, the town produced a great quantity of strawberries and leeks which today have largely been replaced by grapes, which are used to make the renowned Txakoli de Vizcaya wine.
Throughout the year, several festivals and traditional markets are held where you can discover firsthand all the classic products to keep in mind when it comes to eat in Elorrio. The Errebombillos Festival is also a perfect opportunity to explore the town and its gastronomy.
