If you like “Fiestas”, August is indeed the best month to visit the three Basque capitals: Vitoria-Gasteiz, Donostia-San Sebastian and Bilbao. Why? Because for three weeks, local festivities are celebrated, one after another, in the three cities: the fiesta of the “Virgen Blanca” of Gasteiz-Vitoria, the “Aste Nagusia” in Donostia-San Sebastian and in Bilbao. During that period of time, all three have a lot of activities and lots of fun in the streets for people of all ages.

After all year preparing for this, we are ready for 3 weeks’ celebrations. Come and join us! You will not regret it!
