Back to the middle ages in VITORIA-GASTEIZ
Not as famous as Bilbao or San Sebastián, Vitoria-Gasteiz is the administrative capital of the Basque Country, with the best preserved old neighbourhood. The visit of the challenging restoration works of the medieval cathedral and its stone walls has become a must both for foreigners and locals. This mysterious temple has so many well kept secrets that even Ken Follet, the popular british writer, used it as inspiration to write his novel World Without End.
The old part of the city also has one of the most ancient restaurants in the Basque Country. El Portalon is a restored XV century trader-lodge, where “surprisingly, you can find exquisite Basque cuisine and a wine cellar with a wide array of excellent wines”, as the Michelin guide says.
