The Valley of Roncal is a great place for wild-mushroom lovers thanks to all the different varieties that grow in the area and attract amateurs and professional alike to the valley every year.

Different types of mushroom (March mushrooms, St. George’s mushrooms, Porcini mushrooms, Grey knights and Saffron milk caps) grow in the valley from spring to autumn. The Saffron milk cap is highly prized and worth quite some money thanks to its popularity in the Mediterranean.

There are now mushroom reserves, so you should get in touch with the relevant local council if you want to go mushroom picking.
