Itzina
Biotope

From the heart of Gorbeia, straight to your heart: come and be part of something very big ...

Itzina is a wonderful example of karst formations. From the air, it looks like a rocky plateau that rises from its environment, creating a ridge with edges trying to protect the concave inside.

The highest point of the ridge's rocks is Lekanda (1.302m). In the South, Altipiatz and Arteta are brought out, and in the North, Aizkorrigane. At the bottom of it, inside, a group of sharp peaks raises: the Atxas ("haitza"= rock).

IN ITZINA YOU WILL FEEL ON TOP OF CENTRAL PARK GORBEA

 

In the north-eastern side of the karst, you can find the easiest access into it, through the 'ojo de Atxular', which has always been used by shepherds (who also have their cabins and sheepfolds in Itzina) and woodcutters.

However, it is advised against going deep without someone who knows the area properly, due to the lack of paths and guidance features in the landscape. You especially have to pay attention to this appeal in case of fog, which is very frequent in this environment.

Among the caves in Itzina, the one of Supelegor, dwelling of characters from the Basque mythology, is brought out.

In Itzina, you feel at the top, you can watch the stars, discover a unique geology, hear what the wind has to tell you, and even scream as much as you want...

EXPERIENCES

Algunos de sus mayores tesoros, sin embargo, se encuentran en el interior de su subsuelo, donde se esconden numerosas cuevas, simas y ríos subterráneos erosionados por las lluvias y el fuerte viento.

 

La caverna más conocida es Supelegor. La leyenda cuenta que las noches de tormenta, Mari, La Dama de Anboto, se reúne con lamias y sorgiñas en su espectacular pórtico.


Sin embargo, no es recomendable adentrarse sin compañía de alguna persona que conozca bien el área, debido a la ausencia de caminos y de rasgos orientadores en el paisaje.

 

Este llamamiento debe de ser especialmente atendido en caso de niebla, muy frecuente en el entorno.
