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.

A truly lovely building steeped in the history of this turbulent region. The stained glass ceiling was amazing! The staff were very helpful and passionate about past, present and future role of the Basque region.
