Markets in Ordizia and Tolosa
Marketsare a pleasure for the senses and the best showcases for local quality in Gipuzkoa. Ordizia’s Wednesday market is the most important in the province and its prices are the reference for the rest of the territory. The other outstanding weekly event takes place every Saturday in Tolosa. Ordizia fair The origin of this market goes back to the 11th-12th centuries, around the hermitage of San Bartolomé –a meeting point for Ordiziain habitants and for the producers of the surroundings. Nowadays, the fair takes place in the town centre, in the Plaza Mayor (Main Square). Every Wednesday, the fair gathers buyers and sellers of agricultural and livestock products coming from the whole Goierri region, in a very lively and colourful atmosphere. Tolosa Market Every Saturday, El Tinglado market witnesses the sale of local products, such as the highly esteemed Tolosa bean, the black pudding, the ‘mondejus’ –avariety of white pudding–, and the green chili peppers typical ofthe neighbouring village of Ibarra.

Aizkorri-Aratz natural park
The Aizkorri-Aratz area is located between the provinces of Gipuzkoa and Araba, along the mountain range separating these historic lands, approximately between the Arlaban and Otzaurte passes. Geographically, it includes the Zaraia, Elgea, Urkilla, Aizkorri and Altzania ranges with the outstanding peaks of Aitxuri at 1551 m high and Aratz at 1442 m. The division between Cantabrian and Mediterranean waters also runs along this line. From an administrative point of view, the area is divided into four towns in Alava (Asparrena, Zalduondo, San Millán and Barrundia) and seven in Gipuzkoa (Leintz-Gatzaga, Eskoriatza, Aretxabaleta, Oñati, Legazpia, Zerain and Zegama), plus the land that corresponds to the shared mountain area between Gipuzkoa and Álava. In terms of geomorphology, the Aizkorri-Aratz area is characterised by abrupt relief with height differences of almost 1000 m between the peaks and the valleys slotted between them, with limestone to the east as on Aizkorri, Aratz or Egino or flint as on Elgea and Urkilla. Other highly interesting geomorphology includes depressions, hills, canyons, dolinas and karstic basins. The rivers that lead to the Bay of Biscay are the Deba, Urola and Oria, whilst the Arakil and the Barrundia flow towards the Mediterranean. However, the surface water volume is conditioned by the great development of the underground water table system. A wide surface area of forest remains, particularly calcicolous and acidophilous beeches as well as Pyrenean oaks. Almost half of the area (40%) is covered in these formations. It is also worth mentioning the occasional sessile oak. However, humans have changed the potential vegetation so that forestry planting and areas of Atlantic countryside are also well represented, particularly in Gipuzkoa. 22 types of habitat of community interest have been identified. This includes populations of birds of prey, woodpeckers, bats, woodland carnivores, small mammals and saproxylic invertebrates, many of them threatened species or with fields of distribution in the Basque Region restricted to well conserved and extensive forests. In this respect, the area helps to conserve populations of black woodpecker (Dryocopus martius), red kite (Milvus milvus), Egyptian vulture (Neophron percnopterus), European pine marten (Martes martes), European snow vole (Chyonomys nivalis), greater horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus ferrumequinum) and Osmoderma beetles.
