SEMI-PRIVATE VAN TOUR
If you like to immerse yourself in the places you visit, this is undoubtedly your tour. An entertaining journey through Basque history and culture full of anecdotes and curiosities, where you will also learn to play Basque pelota and Cesta Punta in the Jai-Alai of Gernika-Lumo.
With our van tour, we will take you on an entertaining visit that combines a walking tour of Gernika-Lumo and an experience at the Jaila Alai fronton.
We will learn many facts and curiosities about Basque culture, our history and traditions, what really happened in the bombing of 1937 or who actually inspired the iconic painting painted by Picasso… among other curiosities. We will visit the Casa de Juntas, an original air raid shelter, a replica of Picasso’s painting.
We will have the opportunity to delve into the corners that give identity to the town that brings together the main symbols of the history of Bizkaia: from the Foral Oak ancestral meeting point of the Basque peoples, the institutional headquarters of the Government of Bizkaia, living the audiovisual experience inside an air raid shelter, learn about the oldest building in Gernika and its fundamental role during the tragic bombing and we will tell you in front of the replica of the painting “Guernika” by Picasso the anecdotes and curiosities that made him an international icon.
