30 km from Pamplona, is the Arteta spring, one of the natural outlets of the aquifer in the interior of the Sierra de Andía. Since 1896, this spring has supplied water to the capital of Navarre and accounts for slightly more than 50% of the water consumed by the Pamplona Region.
The Groundwater Environmental Education and Information Centre explains the mysterious world of groundwater hidden behind the spring. Using different panels, models and audiovisual montages, the modelling, evolution of the land, aquifer and the nature of the Arteta Spring are explained.
In addition, you can take advantage of one of the two proposed walks: to the Arteta salt flats (2.3 km return trip) or the Ultzurrun-Arteta Spring route (6.2 km, return trip). Also of interest, is a visit to San Salvador church (13th century) and its ethnographic museum in the town of Arteta.
