Espelette

Who says "Espelette", says "pepper" !  Espelette is also a gorgeous village that you must absolutely visit when in Basque Country.

In Espelette, at the end of summer, pepper red garlands are catching the sun, hanging on  the white old basque houses facades .

Every year, on the last sunday of october, Espelette organises its Pepper Festival , a sympathetic festivity where local products "façon basque" are tasted and exchanged.

Actors of various local economical activities such as handicraft, agriculture, gastronomy, and tourists gathered for this occasion to enjoy fresh, powedered or "en corde" pepper.

If you come to Espelette, don't forget to visit the "Chateau des Barons" (Town Hall and Tourism Office) with its exhibition on the history of Espelette Pepper, and the nice Saint-Etienne Church.
