Aiako Harriak

Aiako Harria is the only granite mountain massif in Gipuzkoa. Situated between the municipalities of Oiartzun and Irun, its three summits imposingly rise up over the Bay of Txingudi. The mountain also gives its name to the 6,913 hectares that comprise its Natural Park.

This area is one of singular beauty from different viewpoints; from the geological viewpoint, with its remains of marine animal fossils, more than 300 million years old, from the botanical viewpoint, with its extension of beech and oak trees in the basins of the rivers that cross it, from the historical viewpoint, due to the remains that have been preserved from the main historical events and from the leisure viewpoint, due to the recreational areas and walks.
