Did you know that... Zuriain

 

It is located under Mount Berrondo, on the right bank of the river Arga. It is documented as early as 1.090. In 1.427 it could be a town of lordship shared between the crown and Santa María de Roncesvalles, this ecclesiastical establishment would have bought these rents from Pedro Ruiz de Agorreta. As with the other villages in the area and until the municipal reforms of 1835-1845, it was governed by the deputy of the valley and an alderman who was elected in turn among the houses of the village. There was a bridle path that went up from Pamplona/Iruña towards France and there was a flour mill.
