An unrepeatable place chooses unique enclaves. Markulluko Borda is located on the slopes of Mount Bagordi, in Elizondo itself and in the heart of Baztan, surrounded by ferns, oaks and beech trees, enjoying the magic of nature and serenity, a step away from all the services of the XXI century.
Nestled in the Atlantic Pyrenees, between the Belate and Otsondo mountain passes, the Baztan valley is the largest municipality in Navarre. Fifteen localities belong to it: Oronoz-Mugaire, Arraioz, Irurita, Almandoz, Berroeta, Aniz, Ziga, Lekaroz, Gartzain, Elbetea, Arizkun, Azpilkueta, Erratzu, Amaiur-Maya and Elizondo, capital of the valley. A valley characterized by being a land of noblemen and Indians, who returned from overseas with a large fortune that they invested in remodeling it. The result: abundant palaces and farmhouses of pinkish stone with large balconies; monasteries and medieval bridges over jumping rivers; goals scattered across meadows and hills; suggestive forests; megalithic monuments and caves... In addition, pilgrims, witches and smugglers also left their mark. Today you can follow their footsteps through various routes: the Camino de Santiago del Baztan, the witches' route and the smugglers' trail that links the nearby caves of Urdax, Zugarramurdi and Sara.
Elizondo, the capital of the Baztan valley, will surprise you with its numerous manor houses and palaces. Its most emblematic building is the baroque palace of Arizkunenea, but there are other artistic monuments of interest such as the town hall, the palace of Datue, the viceroy's house or the church of Santiago. Surrounded by an idyllic natural environment, the liveliness and bustle that emanate from Elizondo have made this town a favorite place for the valley's residents to hold fairs and markets.
