Ruta Zarautz
Basque Coast Getaria   Orio   Zarautz   Aia   Zumaia


It sets many people’s mouths watering just to think of piperade from Zarautz, a delicious accompaniment to sautéed rose fish or lobster tail. Its flavour develops over a low heat in the kitchens of local farmhouses. It is a genuine case of seasonal produce, and its colour gives life to the food market at Zarautz. This town is where the Nao Victoria was built, which Elcano sailed in his circumnavigation of the Earth. There is no longer a shipyard here, but the sea continues to dominate in this town that was frequented by royalty long before tourism was invented. It is thrilling to look to one side and see the horizon of the sea, even between the buildings. It is comforting to glimpse the water from the pier, as it accompanies you on your stroll, or as you hit a golf ball, or whilst lying on the longest beach in the Basque Country, or as you cling to a surfboard, waiting to ride the next wave.
