Historical Monuments in Vitoria
Vitoria-Gasteiz City Walls
(33)
Some of the vitoriano wall still remains in the old town. It has been rehabilitated and is now one of the most interesting tours of my city. Anyone who visited Vitoria a few years ago and were told that this city has a wall of more than 200 meters may have found it a bit strange because they didn't see the wall... maybe they wondered where it was or laughed at us because it was made up. But the reason is because this wall was not well known because it was mostly hidden by houses and streets of the old town. In the pictures you can see the visible part of the walls, which you can not see on the tour.

Historical Monuments in Añana
Añana Salt Valley
(8)
The Salt Valley, located in the town of Añana, is an impressive salt complex. Its formation goes back to more than 200 million years ago, when everything was sea. The salt remained underground and later came out in into the exterior through a phenomenon called diapir. The salt water comes out and after being exposed to the sun, the liquid evaporates and the salt remains. Today, the whole site is being restored, but it can still be visited. You can end the walk with a relaxing soak of feet and hands in the brine. Moreover, the Valley is located in the beautiful municipality of Añana, close to Vitoria. Personally, I loved this place. We were accompanied by a very friendly guide that told us every detail of the place and the geological history surrounding it…interesting quirks of nature.

Batalla de Vitoria Monument
(12)
This battle was fought on June 21, 1813, between the French troops escorting Joseph Bonaparte in his flight and a conglomerate of British, Spanish and Portuguese troops under the command of the Duke of Wellington. The Allied victory led to the final withdrawal of French troops from Spain (except Catalonia) and forced Napoleon to return the country's crown to Fernando VII, ending the Spanish War of Independence. In June 1911 the Spanish government applied for credit to erect a monument to this battle, placed in a square in Victoria. The city had a competition for the design and it was won by Gabriel Borras, who finished the work in 1917.

Historical Monuments in Laguardia
Monument to the fabulista Samaniego
This is an iron monument with a bust of one of the most famous people born in Laguardia, the fabulist Felix Maria Samaniego. This monument is at the end of Collado pass (in the north of town), and from there you'll have a lovely view of the mountains of Cantabria, with the Ysios winery just below where you are. It's worth it to visit just for those views.
