Art and culture have bestowed Arantzazu with great recognition. This has meant that its privileged geographic location has often taken second place. On this route you can see the wealth of this environment, with wonderful open views on a route that combines nature and ancient skills and crafts.
Arantzazu for many years has been a cultural benchmark and, since 2011, when the Park opened its doors it also protects the natural environment. Here you can find the Aizkorri-Aratz Natural Park Interpretation Centre.
The work of shepherds will continue in the future given that each course various students learn this skill in Gomiztegi school.
