A unique language and culture, celebrated in a historic converted monastery

San Telmo Museum

Basque history and culture

The Basque people and culture are not only unique in the world (their language, for example, related to no other), but have helped make Spain what it is today. A 16th-century Dominican monastery tucked beneath Mt. Urgull is the setting for the Museo de San Telmo. Along with its next-door modern annex, it's a museum of Basque society, with exhibitions about this region's archaeology, ethnology, folklore, customs, and art. If you want to truly understand the local culture, this is a must-visit.
