Flora, fauna, and landscape on the banks of the Arga River
A river landscape for enjoying nature in which the fauna and flora have a special role and where you can visit the ancient and modern irrigation infrastructures.
The Arga river path is an itinerary that runs through Larraga, Berbinzana and Miranda de Arga. These towns, especially linked to the River Arga, have known how to make the most of the river by building architectural and agricultural complexes. The river also has a landscape of flora and fauna value of great interest. The proposed route runs through three infrastructures: the Old Irrigation of Larraga and Berbinzana, the Old Irrigation of Miranda de Arga and the Navarre Canal. The first two were two ancient infrastructures that were in use until a few years ago. The third is a modern infrastructure that has replaced the previous ones. In terms of scenery, the route has several places of interest such as the viewpoints of the Parque del Castillo and La Costanera de Larraga, the Dehesa de Berbinzana or the Alto de Miranda de Arga, where you can see the river. From the agricultural point of view, the typical crops are those destined both for private consumption (lettuces, tomatoes, peppers, thistles, etc.) grouped in small gardens and large extensions destined for large-scale production (corn, grafted vines, etc.).
