We arrived just minutes before they closed so we only saw the main room. The gentleman at the door was very kind and spoke English so my family could understand. This is a very important site in Basque history; learn about the fueros.

An important reminder that culture, language, etc., is very important for any human being, few places have been as strong as Basqueland to maintain their uniqueness. Well worth to visit, take some time and reflect.
