, previously called "Hunter's Valley", lies between the Pamplona
basin and the north of Navarre
and is a place of transit on the thousand-year-old Pilgrim's Way to Santiago
. In a beautiful setting, the river Arga
- from its source in the forest
of Quinto Real
- meanders down this pleasant valley that still contains traces of the agricultural and livestock culture of the area around Pamplona
Although all the villages in the valley have their charm, Larrasoaña
stand out for reasons of size and historical importance. The festivity of the valley also rotates among the villages, with handcraft stalls, rural sports displays and fanfarres
matches, public aperitifs and activities for the children usually make up the programme of this lively 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.
