Under the attentive gaze of the Urbasa-Andía natural park
stands the ancient Valley of Améscoa
. Its wealth and variety of habitats has led to two-thirds of the territory it covers being classified as an SCI (Site of [European] Community Importance). Of all the area's highlights, the impressive turquoise blue waters of the source of the Urederra river
The valley is divided into Améscoa baja
(low) and alta
(high) and is home to eleven villages: Larraona, Aranarache, Eulate, Ecala, San Martín, Zudaire, Baríndano, Baquedano, Artaza, Gollano and Urra. They rotate the organisation of the annual Festivity of the Valley
, a pleasant day out that starts with the placing of a boundary stone and continues with games for the kids, an exhibition of rural sports and a lot of music, among other things.
