The Pilgrims access Zubiri via the bridge Puente de La Rabia. According to legend, below its arches rests the remains of Santa Quiteria. In addition, this bridge of Gothic style has also been attributed to healing properties. Rabid animals that circled under its main arch three times would be cured of their illness.
From the town of Eugi hikers reach Quinto Real, a splendid and vast beech forest of more than 3,000 acres, divided from north to south by the river Arga. It is inhabited by a diverse number of animal species such as roe, deer and osprey. The name of this wood comes from medieval times when kings perceived a fifth of all benefits to be their own.
That is, in order to take home four trout fishermen would have to catch five. At the foot of Quinto Real is the Eugi Reservoir, which supplies the city of Pamplona with half its water consumed. It is closed to the public.
Lovers of hiking have the opportunity to enjoy wonderful routes such as La regata Etxarro, or Mirador Usetxi, and those passionate about hunting and fishing, will be in Paradise in the ancient Valle de los cazadores (The Valley of hunters). Just ask Ernest Hemingway. The
Esteríbar Valley is also a famous place for mountain bikers. The sports centre of Zubiri incorporates a large number of activities. Here visitors can enjoy an exciting game of pelota vasca-a ball game similar to handball, typical in Navarra and the Basque Country- one of the most popular sports in this area, a swim in the pool or can indulge in activities of leisure.
