Direction: Casco Viejo to enjoy some tapas in 2 or 3 of the most authentic bodega bars in the old town.
The Basques on both the Spanish and French sides of the country have almost everything in common… except for tapas. The tradition of eating mini portions at the bar is a truly authentic experience of life on this side of the border. One must, therefore, venture further to the South of the Basque Country, called Hegoalde, to enjoy a genuine tapas evening. The poteo, strolling from tapas bar to tapas bar, has its own set of etiquette rules to master the art of eating while standing up.
