On the route of the old Plazaola railway line
, the Valley of Larraun
, which sits at the foot of the Aralar mountain range, stays green and leafy all year round. A host of villages and robust farmhouses are linked by a network of footpaths that lead to the most interesting spots in the area. Don't pass up the chance to walk itineraries such as the source of the river Larraun
, viewpoints like the one at Albiasu
or visit the Cave of Mendukilo
The valley is made up of sixteen village councils, with Aldatz
being the biggest. They rotate the annual festivity that brings them together once a year. There is a full programme for children, an exhibition of Herri Kirolak
(Basque sports), a communal meal, games, music and bertsolaris
(bard poets) are some of the activities that will certainly be enjoyed on the day.
Did you know that...?
The Days of the Valleys are celebrations of a festive nature that bring people together from the towns and villages in them. They are held on a rotating basis, and the organising town or village puts on the best possible show. The numerous activities - for all ages - make the event a fantastic opportunity to spend a pleasant day and get to know local traditions at the same time.
