Gorbea Natural Park

The Gorbea Natural Park is located between the historical regions of Bizkaia and Alava, around the Gorbeia mountain with 1.481m of altitude.
The 70% of its surface is occupied by beech, oak, and pine woods. In its peak, you can see the famous Gorbeia Cross, which is 18m height.
Countless shacks and sheepfolds spread out the meadows of Gorbeia, as a reflection of an important pastoral tradition. We also find constructions such as forges or farmhouses with a typical rural architecture.
THE GORBEA IS THE SCENE OF MANY STORIES OF THE BASQUE MYTHOLOGY WITH LAMIAS, WITCHES, AND 'GENTILES' AS PROTAGONISTS.
