Perched villages nestled on the hillsides, overlooking the fertile plains of Gimone and Arratz, agricultural and varied landscapes in which we find pretty little hamlets that blend into the heart of nature. To discover these places, you just have to drive and let yourself be surprised by these pretty winding roads.
