Less than 10% of the total population of Euskal Herria lives in the French Basque Country. However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a lot of things to do in the French Basque Country.
The region is much more developed along the coast, where the largest cities can be found: Bayonne and Biarritz. During the summer, the area is a popular beach destination, beloved by both French and Spaniards, as well as international tourists.
As you go towards the interior, the landscapes quickly become more mountainous and rural. But the area still has a lot to discover, such as exploring the quaint tiny villages of Espelette, famous for its peppers, and St Jean Pied de Port, well-known for being a popular start point of the St Jacques pilgrimage.
