It was originally used by shepherds taking their herds to the winter pastures (coastal) and the spring-summer pasture in the mountains.It now mixes the pleasure of the mountains and, to a certain extent, religious beliefs with cultural history.Arantzazu has a certain mystical charm that enthralls both mountains and pigrims, as well as any visitors.
The path joins the following GRs: GR 35, Herding Route,GR 21, Ignaciana Route,GR 65.2, Santiago Path (inland), and GR 120, the Route of the Temples.
