Joining this project, the volunteer will not only help to restore an ancient roman road used for trade and transportation until the 18th century, but will also engage in learn about the Basque traditions and culture and learn about the history of the region. The nature around the work site is surrounded by green mountainous landscape with San Sebastian and the beach not far away (70 km).
