To start exploring the town of Jaurrieta, we recommend that coming from the neighboring town of Ochagavía, you access a beautiful viewpoint that offers a perfect view of the town and its crowded houses.
These two towns are located in the Salazar Valley, in a perfect enclave for visiting its landscapes and its privileged environment, since due to its proximity you can make a large number of excursions and natural visits.
A privileged environment
Not only is it a pleasure to walk through the streets of Jaurrietas full of roofs characteristic of the Navarrese Pyrenees, doors with semicircular arches and stately homes, but this point offers a large number of outings and excursions to impressive places that you cannot miss.
From here you can go to the Irati Forest, famous for its excellent conservation that allows a large amount of fauna to be observed, as well as having various routes to discover the charms of this green tangle that is the lungs of the territory.
The excursions can be done on foot, by bike or with interpretative visits of the flora and fauna, and it is suitable for all ages and physical conditions. But if this forest does not attract your attention, we recommend the almost obligatory visit to Roncesvalles/ Orreaga.
You will love walking through its streets because of the beauty of this little town, but there are also monuments with great monumental and historical value that you must visit. We are talking about the Collegiate Church of Santa María, the Tomb of the Giant King, the Chapel of Sancti Spiritus or Charlemagne’s silo, the Library Museum or the Bible Fountain.
Delve into places to learn about the history of Navarre.
These places are essential if you want to learn more about the history of the Kingdom of Navarre and the important battles that took place over the centuries in this territory.
