Urtsua - Ursuia (Mendionde)

Those who know how to take it easy at the start, on the path to the Mendionde washhouse and on the tough ascent to the Etxebarne district, will be able to take full advantage of the rest of this loop around Mount Ursuia, a pleasure of contemplative wandering. The easy paths on the heights of Mendionde, Hasparren and Macaye offer constantly changing views, both of the neighbouring mountains and of the Atlantic coastline. On the way, you will come across sheep and pottoks, and take a shady break under the hundred-year-old oak and chestnut trees. The heritage dimension is also satisfied, since you will discover farms and mountain edges, you will walk along a section of the ancient Napoleon road and the circuit skims the remains of a protohistoric camp. In other words, you will not see the time pass in the arms of Ursuia.
