Alto del Perdon
Exciting panoramic views as you head towards Puenta la Reina. Methodically laid out in front of you are the villages you will pass through - Uterga, Muruzabal and Obanos. At the crossing you will find the “Parque Eolico del Perdon” created in 1996. This is a most delightful picnic spot with cast-iron “cut-out” sculptures of pilgrims on foot and horseback and two donkeys and a dog! The inscription reads, donde se cruza el Camino del viento con el de las estrellas (where the path of the wind crosses that of the stars), a poetic reference to the Camino de Santiago and the Milky Way.
Get to the other side of the road following the way marks, which lead to the valley bottom. You now join a track coming from behind on the right and keep straight on (left). Cross a small river with a long line of trees along its banks and walk uphill into village of Uterga.
