Complementary Information:At the foot of the fabled Anboto Peak. The old mining train of Arrazola, with the steam locomotive Aurrera at its head, used to travel down the tranquil water meadows of the river Arrazola to the town of Apatamonasterio. Today the Greenway allows us to walk the beautiful Vizcayan Atxondo valley from north to south and arrive at the foot of the Anboto Peak, the highest peak of the mountainous Urkiola Natural Park, fabled home of Mari, the ancestral goddess of the Basque people.
