Day of the Valley of Guesálaz

Fiestas, traditions and events of interest / Thematic day


33 kilometres from Pamplona there is a valley where time has stood still, and where a stroll through any one of its 19 villages will sharpen your senses. Its name is Guesálaz and it is bordered by the Urbasa-Andía natural park to the north and the Alloz reservoir to the south, and the 'bay' of the village of Lerate is the best place to enjoy the opportunities provided by the reservoir's waters.
Although the number of local inhabitants is low, they get together every year to meet up and celebrate the Day of the Valley, a festivity to which everyone is welcome. The only requirement is to come with the idea of having a good time, as there are activities for all ages. So, if you have some time this weekend and you don't know what to do, head for this picturesque valley.
A 33 kilómetros de Pamplona, existe un valle en el que el tiempo se detiene, donde pasear por alguno de sus diecinueve pueblos permite recuperar la viveza de los sentidos. Su nombre es Guesálaz y sus límites están marcados por el parque natural de Urbasa-Andía por el norte y el Embalse de Alloz al sur, siendo la bahía del pueblo de Lerate desde donde mejor se pueden disfrutar de todas las posibilidades que ofrecen sus aguas.
Aunque el número de habitantes es reducido, anualmente se reúnen en una de sus localidades para reencontrarse y festejar el Día del valle, fiesta de hermandad en la que todo el mundo es bienvenido. El único requisito es tener ganas de pasarlo bien, porque actividades hay para todos los públicos. Así que si tienes un hueco este fin de semana y no sabes que hacer, no dudes en coger el coche y poner rumbo a este pintoresco valle.
