Entertainment and tradition

The entire town, summer dwellers and visitors dive head first into the celebrations which include: gastronomic competitions, traditional dances, and concerts to live the festivities 24 hours a day.

The festivities are an excellent opportunity to learn about Basque culture and traditions. No doubt you will find out what a ‘Gau Pasa’ is. And then, why not learn to dance a Jota?



The traditional Joaldunak, typical Navarrese characters with their large cowbells on their backs to wake nature up and ward off evil spirits.



The entire town goes into the street to enjoy the different Basque dances, danced to the music of traditional instruments like the ‘txistu’ and ‘tamboril’ in a display of dances and music parades with a festive atmosphere always finished off with a good ‘pintxo’ and wine



One of the most lively moments of summer. The competition of cod which is carefully cooked in the open air is very popular as are the rural and artisanal fairs.



Like every big festival it starts with the txupinazo, a rocket that announces the beginning of a festival that lasts three or four days. We will see traditional Basque dances and traditional Basque sport exhibitions such as stone lifting or trunk cutting. There is also a traditional paella competition which is very popular in the village. And in the evening, live music is played by local and regional bands, to end the day in the best way.



It takes place in the third week-end of August. In this festival children and adults have fun together with games and gastronomic competitions; omelette competition and the traditional “Sukalki” competition, a typical Basque beef stew that everybody here loves.



Once again, a gastronomic competition is the big attraction of this festival. This time, snails with “bizkaina” sauce are cooked, a typical meal which is very common in this season. There is also a Christmas market, games and music that make this festival unforgettable.
