Basque Handicrafts


One of the strengths of San Sebastián's economy is trade. In addition to the exclusive shops and boutiques on Avenida de la Libertad, you will find charming craft shops. Discover them, especially, in the city's Old Town. The handmade items are reminiscent of the small fishing village that San Sebastián used to be. Like the popular 'kaiku', a container for collecting milk and making curd. Or the 'makila', a traditional staff that was a symbol of authority or recognition. And, of course, the 'kutxa', a chest carved out of wood. If you are looking for something out of the usual, get one of these unique pieces. It will be a perfect souvenir of your time in the Basque Country.
