The village of Espelette
World famous for its chilli culture, Espelette is also a picturesque traditional village of Labourd. The facades of its half-timbered Basque houses are adorned much of the year by the bouquets of chilies that are put to dry. Emblem of the city, the chili of Espelette is celebrated in late October: Two days of concerts, dances and folk songs, tastings of local produce, chili in the head of course, and demonstrations of Basque force or ball. From spring to autumn, a visit to the Chili Workshop is a must: you will discover, through a course that makes you pass from the fields to the workshops of artisanal production, all the secrets of the culture of the famous chili of Espelette. The village is also a pleasant place to walk: A pedestrian zone allows you to stroll between many shops of local products and crafts, admiring to your liking the architecture typical of houses and shops.
