Hasparren festival

12 April 2018 by admin

At the heart of greens hills, the rich houses offer an at the same time rich and surprising past. Indeed, Hasparren “the city of oaks” was since the oldest times a strategic place of the Basque Country. After Romans, the Lords of the Middle Ages, the Age of the Enlightenment, the Industrial revolution exploded there in the XIXth century. A stroll in the picturesque streets will not leave the visitor without surprise: traditional Basque farms are transformed here into elegant houses with stony facades or barded by wooden half-timbering painted in red and green.
