Basque Country Tourism: Best of Basque Country

About Basque Country
Situated at the foot of the western Pyrenees near the French border, Spain's Basque country comprises three provinces: Guipúzcoa and the popular beachfront capital of San Sebastian; Viscaya, where capital Bilbao houses the jaw-dropping Gehry-designed Guggenheim Museum; and Alava, whose capital Vitoria teems with medieval architecture. Running with the bulls at Pamplona and drinking rioja from local wineries add to the region's exotic romanticism. Travel in early summer and autumn to avoid the crowds.
