Thanks to Christian Rodriguez for adding this peak.
The limestone ridge Alluitz-Anboto is one of the most important of the Basque Mountains. Located in the province of Vizcaya is probably his most spectacular mountain, but not the highest (the mount Gorbea with 1481 meters, in the border with the province of Alava is the highest point of the province). The Basque country contain the provinces of Alava, Guipuzcoa and Vizcaya, but really the highest point of the three is the massif of Aizkorri (with the mount Aitxuri of 1551m).
Geologically this mountains are a part of the Range Basque-Cantabrian (with other mountains like Picos de Europa) and the karts is the normal landscape surrounded with green valleys (the sea is very near and the rain is frequent).
The valleys and mountains of this area are called “Durangaldea” because the main city is Durango.
