Inland the Basque Country offers the historic resonances of Guernica, an ancient town made famous by Picasso's remarkable painting. In the region of Navarre, Pamplona is famous for the annual bull-runs during the fiesta of San Fermin.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in the Basque Country

Although English and some basic Spanish phrases will be sufficient to get by in major cities like Bilbao or San Sebastian, in some rural areas Euskadi, the Basque language, may be the predominant tongue. Be sensitive to the issue, although locals are generally welcoming to visitors. The Basques have a rich culinary tradition and the region offers some of Spain's most impressive fine dining establishments. Less formal, pintxos are the Basque equivalent of tapas, bread with elaborate and colourful toppings. Patxaran is a Basque liqueur made from sloes, usually with a distinctive aniseed flavour.
