Travel Tips for Vitoria
Don't bring big, bulky luggage if friends will be picking you up at the airport- it might not fit in the car! Vitoria is in the rainy part of the country. Bring an umbrella. Lucky me! Didn't need one-uncharactiscally warm and sunny during our stay! lots of pharmacies. look for the flashing green neon cross. Since Vitoria isn't a tourist city, there are not many places to find film, so bring your own.
Sanctuary of Estibaliz
The Sanctuary of Estibaliz is a jewel of the Romanesque period. It is built to worship the twelfth-century carved image of the Virgin of Estibaliz. It has Latin cross plan and single nave, large transept and three chapels in the sanctuary.The nave has three sections and is topped with a barrel vault.The sanctuary has three apses, the central one has joined, half-height columns and modern buttresses to support the walls of the straight section.
It is well worth the trouble to have a close look at the outside of the church with its three asps and the wide variety of sculptures fashioned by master craftsmen, found in its walls.
Next to the Sanctuary stands a Benedictine monastery that formed part of a monastery dating back to before the eleventh century, where you may buy the monastery wine and delicious wine liquer " Virgin de Estibaliz".

Gasteiz is its Basque equivalent. Lots of signs are in both languages, though Spanish is the predominantly spoken language.
