It Rains In Spain

Introducing The Basque Country

Bilbao      San Sebastian      Vitoria

Guide to the Basque Country. It Rains in Spain.

Where to start with the Basque Country? A unique, bafflingly untraceable language. A hardy, sea faring people. Perhaps the greatest cusine in the world. Modern, cutting edge cities. One of the highest standards of living in Spain. And years of carnage.

The desire in some parts for independence remains, but a peace agreement is in place and there is no better time to visit the Basque Country. Once an industrial powerhouse, the Basque Country is successfully reinventing itself as a 21st century leader in art, style and cusine. From the pulsing centre of Bilbao to the old world elegance of San Sebastian, the Basques know how to live. In the villages and the cities, the Basque Country is an altogether unique experience, with the exquiste wine of Alava and the sumptous Pintxos lining every bar in sight. Ongi Etorri! (welcome).
