Church of Santa María de Leguendica
It is known to have existed since the 16th century. It consists of a nave without vaults, with five altars, an atrium and a front tower. The parish church of Santa María de Leguendico was founded by the owners of 14 houses, dependent on the parish of Gautegiz Arteaga. These were later joined by 16 houses that had parish membership in San Andrés de Sukarrieta and that decided, like the previous ones, to dismember from their parish church.
