Burgete - the Sorginaritzaga Forest "Oakwood of Witches" where covens in the XVI century were held. 9 local people suffered at the stake.

I crossed this forest with no knowledge until I got to the other side and read the plaque. I recalled thinking as I walked through it that it was the perfect setting for a mistery movie; kind of dark, lush, and very quiet. The people burned at the stake at this forest were mostly women who would collect plants and leaves and used it as natural medicine, imagine that. The sins of the times-- pure ignorance.
