Trip to País Vasco – August 16-18
60.00€ – 65.00€
Don’t miss our trip to the north of Spain: País Vasco or the Basque Country.
Where is the Basque Country?
The Basque Country is an autonomous community in northern Spain. Locally known as Euskadi or País Vasco, it has its own language (Euskadi), its own culinary traditions, and a distinctive geographic and cultural landscape. In this trip, we will visit the most important cities in the north of Spain:
San Sebastian: boasts one of the best city beaches in Europe. Sebastian is also redefining the Basque image around the world with its extraordinary cuisine. The city has two restaurants ranked in the list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants and in addition, has 16 Michelin stars spread across 9 restaurants. It is also one of the best places to eat pintxos – culinary creations in miniature form, similar to Spanish tapas but better.
San Juan de Gaztelugatxe: one of the most impressive places in the Basque Country. San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, whose name means “castle rock” in Basque (“gaztelu” = castle + “aitz” = rock), is a definite “must” if you are visiting the Basque Country. This is where many scenes from Game of Thrones have been shot, most famously the Dragonstone. Whether or not you like Game of Thrones, you cannot miss this spectacular corner when you have the chance.
