Notice

El acceso al Puente del Diablo es dificultoso y peligroso, por lo que no se recomienda acceder.

Limestone gullies with soaring rock faces, the river running below, the air cut by the wings of griffon vultures and the echo of the clattering of the railway line. This is the "Irati" as it passes through the Foz (gorge) at Lumbier, a Nature Reserve.

The Irati was the electric passenger train in Spain, which led it to appear in several articles in the newspapers and encyclopaedias of the time. From 1911 to 1955 the train covered the 58 kilometres along the Pamplona-Aoiz-Sangüesa line.

At present, 6 kilometres of the route have been arranged as a greenway, allowing visitors to travel it at their leisure.
