33 kilometres from Pamplona
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.
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.
