Basque Country Vacation Packages

Out of all the regions of Spain, the Basque Country might be the most unique. The culture and traditions in the Basque Country grew separately from the other regions, not only producing popular festivals with strong Pagan roots, but also producing Europe's only language isolate. Vitoria-Gasteiz is the de facto capital, boasting a beautiful Medieval quarter revolving around the Plaza España and the Plaza de la Virgen Blanca. Bilbao is the most industrialized city in the region and one of the country's industry leaders; it benefitted greatly from an urban renewal scheme which led to the opening of the world-class Guggenheim Museum. Donostia/San Sebastián is known for its beautiful architecture, its status as a top foodie destination, and of course the gentle, calming waters of the Bay of Biscay and the beautiful Urumea River.
