¿WHY SHOULD YOU COME TO  THE BASQUE COUNTRY?

Simply because the Basque Country has everything you might look for. Thanks to our privileged location in the South of Europe, Spain’s green north right next to the French border, it is the ideal tourist destination all year round.                                   

All close to each other, its three capital cities offer a huge range of posibilities:

 

Three different cities which share many common elements: the love for progress, their accessibility and a busy cultural agenda.

BILBAO

is internationally recognised for its transformation from a post-industrial city into a spectacular metropolis. This cultured and exciting city equals its global counterparts in quality and modernity.

Donostia - San Sebastian

DONOSTIA - SAN SEBASTIAN

is an elegant city with a delightful quiet life. This city, designated European Capital of Culture 2016, also boasts the highest concentration of Michelin star restaurants in the world.

VITORIA - GASTEIZ

is the capital city of the Basque Country and home to the Basque Parliament. It combines classic heritage with a modern, well-organised and tourist-friendly city. It was designated European Green Capital 2012 and has one of the highest rates of green areas per capita in Europe.

TRADITIONS

The basque cities, villages and mountains reflect the passage of time and the traditions bring us back thousands of years through an incomparable scenery. Popular rural sports such as harrijasotzailes (stonelifters), aizkolaris (woodcutters), idi probak (ox dragging) and segalaris (grasscutters) show us a picturesque representation of age-old basque traditions and daily activities. Traditional dance is another deep-rooted social event common in the Basque Country.

Basque pelota matches and rowing-boat races are the most popular local sporting events, which are widely followed by enthusiastic fans.
