Art and culture

In Gipuzkoa a wide variety of cultural expressions coexist which, based on tradition or on the avant-garde, end up saying the same thing: what is really important is to come together and recognize ourselves in this shared treasure, in these creative efforts.

Here you can immerse yourself in one of the oldest cultures that has existed in Europe. We can’t take the credit for this, it goes way back. We are characterized by having the oldest living language on the continent and some singular customs. You can learn about us through archaeological remains or cave paintings, our fiestas, traditions and local sports, museums where we display our history and our present or through internationally renowned avant-garde artists.

Traditional and identity-based elements coexist with contemporary and cutting-edge aspects in all kinds of creative forms of expression. Gipuzkoa, in all its variety, is a unique powerful culture that you will be imbued with at every single corner with an extraordinary richness that we would like to share with you.
