Intro to Basque Country

Located in northern Spain, Basque Country (PaĆ­s Vasco) borders the Bay of Biscay to the north and La Rioja to the south. The northern section has an oceanic climate, while the central parts experience a more Mediterranean climate. Basque Country has a reputation of having some of the finest cuisine, notably its seafood, meats, and local products such as beans and junket. Pintxos, similar to tapas, are very popular here. Bilbao, Vitoria-Gasteiz, and San Sebastian are the major cities in the region.
