Spanish Basque Region

destination-hero

Courtesy Mugaritz

The Basque Country, divided between Spain and France, is one of the world’s great gastronomic destinations. Bordered by the sea on one side and the Ebro valley on the other, the region boasts a wealth of natural resources that that have long contributed to its elite culinary status. In the Spanish Basque Country, the pretty Belle Époque resort town near the French border called Donostia–San Sebastián has several Michelin-starred restaurants in its constellation of starred tables. There’s also superb eating in Bilbao, and in many smaller towns and villages in the region. San Sebastián now boasts a higher density of Michelin stars than Paris. Like in the rest of Spain, Basques dine at a late hour. Lunch generally starts around 2 p.m., and dinner won’t begin until 10 p.m.
