Basque Country



Rick Steves’ Europe Travel Guide | The homeland of the proud and resilient Basque people is split between France and Spain. From our San Sebastián home base, we tour the ancient Basque capital of Guernica, the dazzling Guggenheim Bilbao, and then cross into France for more Basque Country charms. From yummy tapa bars to lightning-fast jai alai games, we’ll experience Basque culture at its most vivid.

    Never did I go into a huge building in Miami with words Jai Alai. I'd seen commercials showing players. It along with other betting "sports" I had no interest but finally I know where it originated.

    A friendly advice: for the benefit of non-europeans,please slow down the captions a bit ie show the captions a little more time.Europeans can hear your voice commentary while others may read the written @t this way all can enjoy your @t example is that of "Booking @t"

    Big big admiration for the Basque county and it´s people! Please tell me how did you scape from beeng " "romanized" , away from Latin and kept the beautifull Iberian laguage Etruska? Where can I get quality information on this? It has always fascinated me!

    And Bacalhau? I thoug that was something exclusive from Portugal! Nice to see that we share that tradition.

    Big hug from Portugal 💞

    Rick Steves's references to revolutionaries in Basque country and Ireland is disappointing, as is his obvious anti-communist feelings. Typical Seattle liberal, smokes weed and is probably a true gentleman with women, but fairly unaware, at least subconsciously, of his class and race privilege. I do like him, but I can't watch his episode on Northern Ireland to the end, or any of the ones in former Soviet bloc countries. He's simply got a lot of history wrong, like most U.S. Americans and English.

    I love the Basque Country but that museum is chaotic and ugly. Modern art is a mess.
