As you might already know, the Basques have a unique culture, language and many special traditions. Here are five things you didn’t know about Basque culture.

1. Basque is one of the oldest living languages.

Basque or Euskera is one of the oldest languages that's still spoken today. As it isn't related to any other Latin language, such as Spanish or French, is completely unique.

 
2. Basque language has six different dialects.

Biscayan, Gipuzkoan, Upper Navarrese, Lower Navarrese, Lapurdian and Souletin.

 

3. Basque language is also spoken in part of France.

Basque isn't just a language spoken in Spain, it's also spoken in the Basque region of southern France, which lies just across the French border in the Pyrenees. 

 

4. They have their own national sport.

The Basques have their own national sport called esku pilota or pelota. The game is like a cross between handball and squash, and is very fast.

    • Kaixo!! Soy un intento de trotamundos que después de haber nacido en un pequeño pueblo (Amaime) de Colombia y de caminar por algunos países de latinoamerica y otros Europeos recale en Euskadi….. En Vitoria-Gasteiz, capital Vasca, me enamoré de una Vasco-Extremeño con la que compartí 12 años de bellos recorridos geográficos y emocionales por todo Euskal Herria. Aquí me quedé y sigo enamorado de la gente, costumbres, gastronomía, tradiciones, lugares…….. En fin, cuando puedas, si no has venido, ven y te lo comparto!!!
