Beech of Altube

Did you know that the Gorbeia Natural Park is the largest in the Basque Country?

 

Gorbeia is home to some of the best preserved groves of the Peninsula and one of the lushest and spectacular is the Beech of Altube. Do you know him?

They say that this forest is therapeutic and in the autumn, it almost becomes a must. It is the moment when the colors of autumn explode, creating a natural impressionist painting. A sight worth seeing!

To reach it, there are several alternatives. That is why we recommend you visit the Interpretation Center - Parketxea in Sarria. It will give you more information about this and other places that are well worth visiting.
