R. N. Urederra Print
The Source of the River Urederra is the main, natural outlet for the significant water table formed in the karstic massif of Urbasa. The spring is located on a nearly-severed wall at the NE end of the municipal area of Baquedano, at a height of about 630 metres. The summit of the face reaches more than 900 metres. The water from Urbasa has moulded the nick on the southern edge of the massif over millions of years to create a rocky amphitheatre of outstanding beauty.

Included in the Natural Park of Urbasa and Andia, its environmental importance led to its inclusion in the network of Protected Areas in Navarra. The NR of the Source of the River Urederra forms a part of the Site of Community Importance Ega - Urederra, an area proposed by the Government of Navarra to form part of the Natura 2000 Network for its importance to biodiversity in the province.
