Very curious castle, pitifully closed to visit
Oct 2020 • Friends
Castillo de Butron is a castle located in Bizkaia Region, in Basque Country. It was reconstructed in a neogothic style in the 19th Century and it is surrounded by nature. Really, it seems a Loira Castle and you do not expect find it here, in the middle of Basquue Country. A very curious building, where pitifully you can not enter to do a guided visit, because it is private and nowadays closed. You only can surround it and see the park and all facades of the castle. Nice and very curious.

Excellent photo op

Butron is is in the countryside near Bilbao. It was built during the Gothic revival fad of the 1800s and is definitely a fantasy castle. Unfortunately, you can't go inside, but it is great place to have your picture taken.

it's not a very known place to visit in the basque country, but this castle is amazing. the only problem is that is the inside is not visitable but in any case, is worth to see the outside. Car is required to arrive there, you can do a route. It's close to Bilbao.

Worth a visit. Beautiful pictures.

It is not hard to find at all as some said. Clearly sign posted and the Apple/Google map was accurate. Easy parking. We parked by the river/bridge just a little ahead of the playground and then it's just a short walk to the castle. Can't go it but can walk around it and take as many photos as you want. If you drive, then this is a worthy short visit. We came here after we'd done Gaztelugatxe, which is not far from it at all. It is a beautiful castle. But if we had limited time or had to get public transport to come, then no.

We had a lovely wander around this castle. Would have absolutely loved to go inside. Looks magical. Grounds surrounding are overgrown but it adds to the magic. You park very close and only have to walk a little

Fabulous castle

This castle makes you VERY curious around how it was in the medieval time when the centerpart wasnt built. Even through you cannot go inside it is a magnificent masterpiece well worth visiting. Go up to the wooden door and count how many holes for crossbows you can see.

Amazing place

Yes is only available from the outside...bit that is part of its charm! A tranquil place, no tourists, just feels like how a castle should feel like, cold, dark and beautiful. A definitely must stop over if in bilbao or san sebastian.

Hard to find and gated off , don't waste your time going to look at this castle - the photo's on here show you all there is to see. Could be a great tourist attraction as beautiful old castle but has just been left.

Amazing castle in the green

The castle is really nice.
It is a pity that cannot be visited. Apparently it is private but I think that once a year they organise something there.
There are some tables outside where you can sit and have a picnic. It seems that in high season there is also a small café next to the tables but it was also closed when we went.

A beautiful castle but completely shut-up and run-down
A gorgeous castle but it's obviously all closed up and noone can get in. There are no signs and it's very run down. Such a shame as it could be an amazing tourist attraction for the area.
