Burgui is the southern gateway to the Valley of Roncal. After passing through the gorge that the River Esca forms between the summits of Borreguil (1,420 m) and Virgen de la Peña (1,294 m), Burgui’s beautiful, Roman-style, Mediaeval bridge stands to welcome you at the entrance to the village.
Every year at the beginning of May, timber rafts pass beneath one of its four spans on their way down the River Esca. The “Day of the Almadía” (Timber Rafting Day) has become a hallmark of the village, reminding us that these strange flatboats were once used to transport timber from the Pyrenees mountains.
The municipal district is home to significant natural phenomena, such as the Pools of Sasi and the Gorge of Burgui, home to one of the largest colonies of vultures in Europe and a wide range of cliff-nesting birds that take up residence on its sheer faces.
