Butrón castle

Its history goes back to century XI, in which a medieval tower was constructed on the old house of Butrón, founded by Gamíniz Captain on century VIII on the Porch of Gatica, on the rocky place of Ganzorri or Gantzurritz.


In 19th cent. its primitive medieval form was altered. The Marquess of Torrecilla, Don Narciso de Salabert y Pinedo, last proprietor of the ruins of Butrón, with the rents that produced the small villages to him that had in Bizkaia, it commanded to reconstruct the castle with an exotic style, similar to which in Baviera it raised romantic and unfortunate king Luis de Baviera.


Actually it has been bought in auction by a real estate company.
