The Roncal Valley in Navarra

Hi Guys!

As you know, I went to the North of Spain last month, while I was there, I visited The Roncal Valley, situated high in the Pyrenees, on the border with France.


Just before arriving to Roncal Valley, we went to see the Yesa reservoir first, a water wonderland that has been called the "Pyrenean Sea" that offers beautiful landscapes, stunning relaxing surroundings and the opportunity to practice watersports, fishing and sailing during the Spring and Summer.

Lake Embalse de Yesa
Yesa Reservoir, also called  "Pyrenean Sea"


Seven beautiful villages make up the Roncal Valley. Today I am going to show you two of them: Burgui and Isaba

Burgui

Burgui was known in the old days for having Stonemasons working the stone. Burgui's bridge over the Esca River is made of stone dating from the Medieval years


  


 Its people planted and grew the wheat so that they could make their own bread. Nowadays there is still an old-fashioned brick oven at the bakers making bread daily which is one of the tourist attraction in the village. We had bread that it had just been baked and it was really delicious.

Delicious bread that is baked daily
 
It is also a famous village for its Almadias (big flat canoes) and almaderos who were the people in charge of carrying the wood on the almadias from the Pyrenees to southern parts of Spain all along the river to sell it.
Almadias

Burgui is like an open-air museum where you can find all the traditional occupations performed in the villages and valleys of the Pyrenees mountains in the old times: Timber rafter, Baker, Charcoal-burner, Ice house, Limekiln and Sawmill

                              


Ice house storage


                                                         Isaba

Isaba is a very beautiful village having a hotel and several rural houses being this one near the Belabarce and Belagua Valleys at the foot of the Pyrenees and just at the border with France where there is also a ski slope




                    




                       
It was windy and a bit rainy so here different way to wear the scarf ;)

Love your photos! I think it's so cool how some of the stuff is from medieval ages, it really gives the place some edge. That bread looks so delicious, I can definitely see how it's a tourist attraction. Love your outfit, especially your purse!
