Artzai Eguna en Auritz/Burguete In July, in the pilgrimage-route town of Auritz/Burguete, just 3 km from Orreaga/Roncesvalles, whose historical ensemble has been declared as Property of Cultural Interest, there will be a demonstration of how dogs, shepherds and sheep come together to form a perfect team.

To celebrate Artzai eguna or the Day of the Shepherd, in the morning there will be a market selling Navarran products, a rural sport exhibition and a rescue demonstration from the local fire fighters. In the afternoon, in the Paraje de Ansobi, there will be the "Regional championship for local breeds of shepherding dogs"; the dogs' obedience towards their owners is sure to impress you.
