GR1 Trail - Historic trails

Very close to our watchtower town we find other places with great stories and legends to tell and discover as we travel through this land. The roots of Navarre include the feats of Charles the Great, whose army was defeated as it passed through this land and about which the visitor can learn about.

 

The battle of Roncesvalles was fought here, where the Vascon army defended its land, defeating Roldán, the nephew of Charles the Great, whose epic tale is told at “Chanson de Roland” (The Song of Roland).

 

From Old Gallipienzo we can begin an epic route through Vía Carlomagno, an initiative certified as a Cultural Itinerary in 2018 and where we will discover towns of great beauty and legends intermixed with history, all just a step away from the Rural Dreams lodge.

 

Get to know this territory by participating in a cultural route covering many countries in Europe and which we can start in Navarre.

Natural reserve of Kaparreta – Natural surroundings of Gallipienzo

Gallipienzo is a very fortunate town for having such natural surroundings with an acknowledged natural value and a characteristic beauty that can be seen with the naked eye from the heights of the town.

We are referring to Kaparreta, declared a natural Reserve in 1987, with vegetation such as holly, kermes, buxus, juniperus (used to make home-made pacharán, a sloe-flavoured liqueur) and savin junipers. The inhabitants of Gallipienzo and the neighbouring towns enjoy this landscape through hiking trails, Nordic walking, and guided tours to see different types of birds or photography, with impressive panoramic views.

The birds that dwell in Kaparreta and for which a lookout was established at Gallipienzo to practice bird watching, are the Egyptian vulture, griffon vulture, peregrine falcon, eagle owl and the golden eagle, and the most important of them all, Bonelli’s eagle. For these reasons and due to its natural and ecological value, in 2014 Gallipienzo was chosen as the ideal place to recover the population of Bonelli’s Eagle in Navarre, through the LIFE Bonelli European initiative.

Also, since 1996, the Natural Reserve of Kaparreta has been considered a Special Protected area for birds (ZEPA is the Spanish acronym) and is part of the Natura 2000 network; also, an effort is being made to conserve its 9 natural habitats of wild flora and fauna.

Another one of the reasons for the beauty of this Natural Reserve is that it is crossed by the Aragon River, which nourishes this area with its water and together with the mountains, comprises what is known as Aragon River’s Green Canyon.

Places with great beauty and natural value surrounding Gallipienzo, also known as “the town of dreams”.

Urban walking tours of Gallipienzo

Old Gallipienzo offers tourists different walking tours to enjoy its intricate narrow streets, paying special importance on the natural landscape and highlighting aspects of the history of this watchtower town, which makes us value how important the Kingdom of Navarre used to be.

 

The first urban walking tour is focussed on the natural wealth; starting at the Fountain and heading towards the interpretive trail of the natural reserve. From there we will walk to the bird observatory, to subsequently climb up to the hermitage of “Nuestra Señora de la Peña”. We will return to the town via the “Camino de las Estelas” and to complete the tour, we will visit the incredible Church of San Salvador. – https://bit.ly/3aOdRne

 

The urban route dedicated to the town’s history begins at the fountain and heads towards the exhibition area. We will then walk along “Juego Largo” street until arriving at a Passageway. Upon arrival we are welcomed by the strong walls of the Parish Church of San Pedro, we will then reach “Plaza del Matadero”, and then return to the Chruch of San Salvador. – https://bit.ly/34immFW

 

Both paths take about 50 minutes to complete and we recommend wearing comfortable shoes. A place to get lost between stone walls and great beauty.

To discover magical landscapes and the peacefulness surrounding Gallipienzo, the visitor can put on their shoes and start walking on the different trails that cross the natural Reserve of Kaparreta, Aragon River’s Green Canyon and its lush forests.

 

The Natural Reserve of Kaparreta is ideal for people that like to walk on long trails and enjoy nature. If you also like bird watching, in this Special Protected Area for Birds (ZEPA) you can see Bonelli’s Eagles, Kingfishers as well as falcons and other birds of prey.

Visitors deserve a top quality walk; this is why this natural trail, that lasts about 2 hours, will take us to the high ground, through the lush forest to enjoy incomparable views of the Green Canyon. – https://bit.ly/2YhcNmJ.

 

The third natural route is known as “Camino de Agua” (Walk of Water), where we will enjoy incredible views and of Fuente Vieja (the Old Fountain). This is a place where herdsmen and their herds frequently pass through and thus, a most traditional essence is guaranteed. This is an easy and relaxing walk that lasts about 1 and a half hour. – https://bit.ly/31eTagZ
