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.

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

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.

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
