'El Perdón' Windpark

Zariquiegui, Comunidad Foral de Navarra

The El Perdón windpark, at the south-western end of the Pamplona basin, was the first to be built in Navarre. It has 40 wind turbines, enormous 'windmills' that can be clearly seen from Pamplona along four kilometres of the crest of the El Perdón range (highest point 1,037 metres above sea level). Access is from the N-111 or the 'Autovía del Camino' motorway. If you take the latter, turn off before the tunnels through El Perdón; as you approach the windpark the turbines get bigger and the sight is a spectacular one.

It offers excellent views over the Pamplona basin and on clear days you can see as far as the Pyrenees, the Moncayo, the Peaks of Urbión and the Sierra de Cantabria. Another interesting sight is the windpark from the road at night, when the lights on top of the nacelles of the wind turbines form a long, flashing red 'snake' along the crest of the sierra. The area is very popular with mountain walkers, cyclists and hang-gliding enthusiasts.
