Environment´s information

The valley of Baztan which is always green has many atrations to see: many palaces and cottages with big windows; monasteries and medieval bridges over rivers; different meadows and hills; forests; megalithic monuments and caves… Besides, pilgrims, witches and smugglers. Nowadays you can follow their footprints through different routes: Camino de Santiago del Baztan, the witches’ and the path of the smugglers that joins the different caves of Urdax, Zugarramurdi and Sara. We will highlight the Caves of Ikaburu that has different guided visits of half an hour to admire the stalactites and the stalagmites of its rooms. The Caves of Zugarramurdi are famous becasue of the witches Sabath’s. The cave of Sara is French and in France we need to highlight that there are 20 kilometers of the frontier where the beach of Saint-Jean-de-Luz is. To see the panoramic views of the Valley of Baztan, there are good lookouts: Ziga, port of Otsondo and the top of GOrramendi. And if what you wish is being mountaineering, there are tops between thousand and one thousand four hundred meters high, besides, you can develop different excursions such as hiking by the route Abartan or the walk of the Waterfall of Xorroxin. There are also museums that are worth to highlight: the etnographic one Jorge Oteiza (Elizondo) or the sculptoric museum Santxotena (arizkun). We also recommend beautiful corners where you can get lost, such as the waterfall of Xorroxin (Erratzu), the dolmens of Izpegi and the megalithic ones of Erratzu-Aldudes. In the East of Baztan is the Natural Park of the Manor of Bertiz.
