Eastern Basque Country

Eastern Basque Country is best known for two key maritime settlements. Pasaia is a historic port with a charming cobblestone centre. Interest here is focused on the fascinating whaling museum and the many excellent seafood restaurants. Further east near the French border, Hondarribia has much to recommend with its walled casco histórico (historic centre), buzzing beach scene and fabulous eateries.
