Places we visit

Pays Basque, Pyrenees Atlantique, Biscay Bay from the mountains to the coast. France  (Aquitaine, Gascogne, Laboure, Bearn and Soule) and Spain (Gipuzkoa and Navarra)   The Basque people are one nation and do not feel divided by any state border. They are very much rooted in their land (which they call respectfully Euskal Herria - Basque Land) and only their dialects can tell which part of the Basque country they are

from. Their language is most likely the oldest language on earth and has no similarity with other language families although due to Basque seamen certain words become known in other languages also. All Basque people are bilingual,  (Spanish or French) and many speak all 3 languages of the Basque country. They are very proud of their  agricultural and historical heritage and their strong connection with earth. The Basques seamen took part of most historical sea voyages and discoveries.

 

In the Biscay Bay and the Pyrenean mountain chain we found countless pre-historical caves and remnants of life of a cro magnon  and Magdalenian  era oldest people dated 35.000 – 14.000 B.C. From bones and tools to breath taking cave paintings, stone circles and dolmens. Many of the caves are close for public as to conserve them only a few still remain open, with restricted amount of visitors.  Basque peoples who seem to have been here since ever never during history got uprooted and despite of various political and religious movements ( Vikings, Hannibal, Romans, Moors, Saracen, crusaders, Templars, Charlemagne, Inquisition, Napoleon and Franco) they stood their ground – literally.  


Basques nowadays are mostly farmers but in history they were also fishermen and seamen and took part in most historical sea voyages

and discoveries. We can find pockets of Basque people elsewhere in the world mostly in the U.S.A. where they emigrated in the last century but many came back to their home. The Basques are friendly however keep a respectful distance. The society, the everyday life is run by women although from the outside it looks quite the opposite. Their family and their house is their life.



Basque Mythology is very rich and is all about beings coming from earth and interacting with people. They guard and protect natural environments. Some of these deities  successfully mingled with Christian religion and are venerated in pubic festivities alongside church feasts. The Pyrenees are full with healing springs guarded by a small beautiful female deity. 



Of course the most well known is in the cave in Lourdes (France). Along with the Black Madonna Our Lady draws pilgrims from all over the world.  Although she is claimed by Catholic Church she is being visited by people of any and no religion altogether. In February 1858 a little lady

started appearing to 12 years old Bernadette Soubirous.  Our Lady, that's how Bernadette called her,  asked the girl for spreading  compassion and penance, eat grass and drink form the spring.  Many quick and spontaneous healings have been happening since. Although there is no more grass and the spring water runs through metal pipes and into plastic bottles, the cave of Lourdes holds its special energy where water and rock meet under the mountain. It certainly uplifts the spirit and prompts for contemplation. It's best to be visited out off season, when there are not so many pilgrims.

Anglet Chambre d’Amour, Biarritz, Bidart (France) 

Biscay Bay is made by rocky mountains sloping down to the wild Atlantic. Of course there are also most amazing beaches (Anglet is voted the best in France), one of the best surfing spots in the world. It's history is as dramatic as the weather, with pirates and discoveries of the new worlds and of course trades and whaling. Today's tourists come to recharge, relax and be taken by it's beauty. The experience of the magnificent waves crushing into the rock is a magic moment for everyone. 



Itxassou (France) 
is where you  sleep and experience indoor activities and most of the time eat. Cute little village, the most sought after thanks to the magnificent Roland path - wild river running

YouTube Video

through the rocky canyon of foothill of Artzamendi and Mondarrain mountains.  Black wild goats and vultures live above the river in the steep rocks. Church of Saint Fructus down in the village has extraordinary wooden carved balconies and Basque crosses reveal sacred geometry. Stone circles are on the "Bear Mountain" overlooking the Chain of Pyrenees and the Atlantic coast. Nestled amongst the mountains like a jewel she is very beautiful and special energy place.  

     

 

Cirque de Troumouse (France)

About an hour by car ascending from Lourdes by Heas - Gedre Valley, we arrive to the National Park and spectacular circle of Troumouse (2103m.). Energy of the high peaks meet the sky and downloads vibrations of the universe into this planet. Possibility of a walk to Virgin of

Troumouse or just relax and soak in the freedom in absence of human thought. There is space for your contemplation healing and reseting. Warm and protective clothes and walking shoes necessary.  

   





Zugarramurdi (Navarra, Spain)

Place of magic, witchcraft, energy of nature. Behind the village there is a cave where villagers did their cooking, socialising  and had their ceremonies in harmony with nature. Undoubtedly in altered state of consciousness thanks to a special local plant and toad they enjoyed their trips out of body but

also access healing. They used naturally their spiritual powers, same as their pre-history ancestors used to do when living in caves.  Yet the Spanish Inquisition with the Hammer of Witches managed to brake their free spirit by endless twisted and wicked accusations and torture, many of the free spirited women, children and men died in prison in Logroño were they were kept and many others were burned at stake there. The place
vibrates with mountain springs and spirit wisdom. Fortunately the freedom of just being stayed with the Basques until today.  The cave is again used for special gatherings to celebrate the witches. (In the Basque country the witches are celebrated, not shunned.) Little drive above the village and an hour hike up, there are more cromlechs, a stone circle and a beautiful menhir. Wild horses come to you and vultures fly over your head, just like they do on other mountains in this region.       

   

 

 

 Ekain (Spain) (UNESCO)

  2 hour drive along the coastal motorway to Spain and dive into to mountains.  Horses are the main topic in the cave paintings dated 14.000 years

B.C. The Ekain (Horse) cave is one of a few caves in the Pyrenees with pre-history paintings that is still open to public. Deep in the cave and far away form any day light these horses become alive in a flicker of flame, yet this is no more allowed and electric light is used instead. Still the enchanted observer can marvel about the origins of this magnificent apparition. Horses have been friends to us probably since the beginning of the  human race on the planet. Even now they own the mountains and local culture. They are the ideal communicator between heavens and humans and for this they are very much respected here.   

 Saint Jean Pied de Port (UNESCO) (France)

Medieval town 1/2 an hour drive from Itxassou with rich history of Christians and Moors. It is a capital of Navarre region. It is well known starting point to Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Unlike pilgrimage place of Lourdes you don't find here any tacky or religious shops, only practical stuff for pilgrims with whatever they might need on their crossing the Pyrenees and 800 km walk to the Spanish coast. When you are in this little hilly town out of season you see  people of any age of any nationality or background humbly carrying their backpacks with St. Jacque shell doing their soul journey.  Above the town with many "auberges" there is a monumental medieval Citadel, nowadays made into a collage. As the town has been also a trade route you can find exotic spices, teas and salts shop but also local produce of any kind. Walking through the town and having a local desert with a coffee will thanks to the refined atmosphere certainly make one unique experience.
