Día del pastor de Améscoa  
Just under the Urbasa-Andia natural park lies the centuries-old Valley of Améscoa, which conserves its ancestral traditions. One of them is shepherding, an activity that has moved with the times and continues to offer unbeatable cheeses.
The Day of the shepherd or Artzai Eguna is a great opportunity to take part in some of the activities that are organised, such as the market with typical products from the valley (stone, cheese, bread, confectionery) or exhibitions. You can also attend a sheep-shearing demonstration, wool carding and cheese-making, or enjoy the communal meal.
