FACTORY OF ARMS OF ORBAIZETA AND CAVE OF ARPEA

About 20 km from our hostel, in the valley of Aezkoa, the ruins of the Royal Weapons and Ammunition Factory of Orbaizeta rise up.

At present, the ruins have been devoured by vegetation and hidden under a green blanket of moss. Its enigmatic air and being an important sample of the industrial archeology of the XVIII century has earned it the declaration of Cultural Interest.

Following the road that has taken us to the Royal Weapons Factory we will find spectacular green hillsides that hide the Cave of Arpea, an essential visit for nature lovers.

It is an enclave where time seems to have stopped. An extensive green carpet surrounded by beech, oak and mountains, crowned at the bottom by Mount Adi, which with its 1,459 meters of altitude watches the forests, meadows and the river, drawing an unforgettable landscape. In Sorogain the Erro River is born, which crosses the valley to which it gives its name and runs more than 40 kilometers before flowing into the Irati river.

ZUGARRAMURDI

Most of the visitors who receive Zugarramurdi every year do so attracted by the stories and legends about witchcraft that emerged around the inquisitorial process of 1610.

There are documents that prove the experiences of similar episodes in at least 64 other locations in Navarra. While it is true that Zugarramurdi, because of the social dimension that the Auto de Fe had at the European level, has earned the popular nickname of “People of the Witches”.
