Culture and tradition

Basque dance, songs and gastronomy are not folkloric elements but cultural ones.
From Basque linen to espadrilles, from xare (Basque pelota) to saski (traditional basket), whether traditional or original creations, all this craftsmanship makes the Basque Country an authentic country.
The Basque Songs, more than just pieces of music, are an integral part of the identity.
Through these songs, the roots, history and struggles of the Basque Country are highlighted.
