One traveller. One destination. The Basque Country
A trip to the Basque Country is a culinary pilgrimage to the home of pintxos or tapas, accompanied by the famous local wine, txacoli. But there are also plenty of cultural options and places to explore. You can stroll around beautiful cities, discover amazing, unspoiled scenery, and visit some of the most avant-garde monuments. How does that sound?
Buildings with amazing structures designed by architects from all over the world, delicious cuisine, a shopping area known as El Ensanche, an old quarter selling traditional products... fancy coming to one of Europe's most avant-garde cities?
The magical valleys of Gipuzkoa hide three secrets: the Sanctuary of Loyola, the chapel of Santa María La Antigua, and the Sanctuary of Arantzazu. Three religious monuments, surrounded by nature and legends. A journey to discover some of the area's most beautiful landscapes. Come and find them, and be amazed by this route.
See those small dishes that fill the counters in bars and restaurants? Those are the delicious pintxos (pronounced “pinchos”), the traditional tapas of the Basque Country. Like miniature haute cuisine. But watch out – it's hard to choose and you'll probably want to try them all!
