The first 2000 meters of...Ory

Because the number of mountains of this area actually in SP is a few (only 3 mountains) I decided to joint this 2 very wide areas but really it's the area of Roncesvalles and the area of Irati.
For the same reason the mountains of the Basse Navarre (north, french side) as Behorlegi are linked to this area for the moment.

Roncesvalles / Orreaga is the area around this important village. Roncesvalles has the historic pass across the Pyrenees on Ibañeta (the way of Santiago, the battle of Rolando,...) and it's an important touristic place with church (Colegiata) and monastery. All the peaks are big hills with easy walks to the summit, nice forest and very wide panoramas.
