This region is home to a large number of natural and cultural treasures. Its mountains are permeated by the footprints left by the first shepherds thousands of years ago, as well as by the close relationship between its inhabitants and this natural place for centuries. But if something makes this natural environment special and unique, it is the magical atmosphere that flows from its most prominent peak, Anboto, home of the ancient goddess Mari, one of the main myths of Basque culture and identity.
