HISTORY

Aubixa inhabitants, were at that time, tenants of the Landlords of Olaso, and the house was so-called Aubixa.

Early signs from Aubia date from year 1538, moreover it can be said that, some years later, undoubtedly, Aubia , as a country house, was forced to pay the landlords of Olaso the obligatory taxes, which consisted of four fanegas (ancient measure) of Wheat, plus a quarter of wheat due to the transport , having to obey direct orders of the landlords of Olaso. With a high degree of certainty, the name of Aubia may be derived from the name Zubia, due to the old way passing by, which linked the three basque provinces.
