    The Chapel of Our Lady d'Aubépine (Marie there appeared to a young shepherd in a hawthorn bush or arantza hence the other name of the Notre-Dame d'Aranzazu) has a Way of the Cross since 1886 , a cave since 1897 and since 1898 an ordeal. Besides the story in place of the apparition of the Virgin to a young priest, similar to Oñate, this site has 389m altitude interest to offer one of the best views of the Labourd circus Xareta and leveling the valley to Saint Jean de Luz and the Atlantic coast. Twice destroyed during the Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars, it was rebuilt each time with funds raised by the hermit John of Bérécochéa born February 6, 1745 in Ainhoa ... For a long time, the faithful Ainhoa and villages surrounding ride in procession to the chapel on Whit Monday to hear the solemn mass. "

    After visiting Ainoah, if you still have a little energy left, don't miss this visit. “The slope is hard” as the other would say but the reward is at the end! The setting is very relaxing, you will be welcomed by pottoks and you will see burials typical of the region. If Ainoah is visited, the Hawthorn is its jewel!

    This is a very uphill hike, but mostly on a gravel road (some paved early). It took us about 45 minutes to get to the chapel from the parking lot near the trail start. There are great views of the...

    The walk up here is long but it is worth it. You walk up the track and once you arrive at the chapel the views are amazing. We decided to walk higher to the top of the mountain and there were lots of...
