San Juan Xar Nature Reserve in Igantzi

A spiritual sanctuary within a natural sanctuary, such is San Juan Xar. This space was declared a Nature Reserve in 1987 as it contains the only autochthonous woodland in the Iberian Peninsula. In the heart of this outstanding landscape in the centre of the western Pyrenees we come to a cavern and a chapel with a fountain with three jets of water, which is believed locally to have miraculous healing powers in the case of skin trouble.
