BAZTAN VALLEY, WITCHES & SMUGGLERS ROUTE

DESCRIPTION
On this sightseeing countryside tour of the Basque Country, we will follow the route that was allegedly used by smugglers in the past to avoid border controls and as an alternative way of earning a living during difficult times. We will visit the villages of one of the most unique and magical regions of the Basque Country: The Baztan Valley. After a stop in the city of Elizondo, we will continue our trip towards the Spanish-French border to visit the caves of Zugarramurdi, where we will learn about the practices employed in “witchcraft” and the story of the 11 people who were condemned to die at the stake by the Spanish Inquisition in 1610.
