The Villa de Gernika is an emblematic place for Bizkaia and for the entire Basque Country. The suffering of the people in the bombing carried out by the fascist forces in the Civil War was immortalized by Pablo Picasso in one of his best-known paintings, Guernica.

The main symbol is the Tree of Gernika, next to which the General Meetings of Bizkaia are held. The oak represents the freedoms of the Basque People. In the town you can also visit the Casa de Juntas (where the tree is), the Church of Santa María and the Parque de los Pueblos de Europa, where you can admire the sculptures of Eduardo Chillida and Henry More. It is also possible to visit the Basque Museum and the museum of La Paz
