Matute

Matute is a municipality in the sub-district of Alto Najerilla. Together with Tobía, Ledesma, Pedroso and Anguiano, it is the gateway to the district as it stands on the watershed of the foothills above and the highest lands in the basin.

Three rivers pass through Matute: the Najerilla, which flows along a  part of its eastern side, and two smaller ones that are, however, more important: the Tobía and the Rigüelos (also known as the Matute).

To reach Matute, take the road from Bobadilla to Tobía. The village’s income is from agriculture, stockbreeding, forestry and, in some cases, local industries and jobs in Nájera and Baños de Río Tobía.
