The charming village of Labata is nestled among the spectacular surroundings of the Sierra y Cañones de Guara Natural Park.
Visitors will first notice the slender Parish Church of San Mateo. This solid building, built with ashlar and brick masonry, has a single vaulted nave and crowned by a dome that sits on a pendentive.
The surrounding area is also home to interesting chapels, like the Chapel de Santa Lucía, only a pleasant and scenic walk away, as well as the remains of the Nuestra Señora del Río, San Salvador, and Santa Cruz chapels.
The remains of the village’s former wall and castle, built in a clearly strategic position, are nearby.
Another point of interest shared with other villages in the area are the rock formations related to ancient fertility rituals: Peña O. Bozo and Peña del Moro.
Like other nearby villages, Labata is part of the Valle de la Gloria mountain biking trail. Nature lovers and fans of two-wheeled sports will find plenty to do in this region tucked between the plain and the foothills of the Pre-Pyrenees.
