home / origins / the basque country


Its unique history has shaped the character of the Basque Country, from the mystery surrounding its origins to its conversion into one of the economic engines of the Iberian Peninsula based on its industrial development in the 19th century.

The richness of its traditional culture comes from its strategic location. The Basque Country possesses a unique folklore, as well as its completely indigenous sports, its language, Basque, and its cuisine is well-known for its richness, variety and the quality of its products.

In the Basque Country, gastronomy is revered as a veritable religion and it is in the "sidrerías" (traditional Basque cider houses), some over 300 years old, where the famous "charcoal grilled T-bone steaks" are savoured and at the cry of "txotx" (pronounced "choch") cider is poured directly from its barrel into a glass.
