We will start our “Basque Secrets-Tour of Art” tour departing directly towards Hernani from the hotels of Bilbao city center. There we will obtain a brief introduction about the life of the sculptor Eduardo Chillida, wellknown for his iron and concrete works. Once in Chillida Leku, the museum erected to the maker´s memory, we will have 1 hour to be able to know first hand his work and be delighted walking among the forest area that surrounds the farmhouse Zabalaga, place where that work is explained and interpreted.

Afterwards, we will be transfered to Astigarraga, location wellknown for the cider tradition, where we will enjoy a guided visit to the Cider Museum and learn about the culture associated with this millenary drink, distinguishing mark of the Basques. Here we will arrange a cider tasting through the ritual of “Txotx” (serve cider directly from the “kupela” or barrel). Hereafter, we wil have some free time for lunch in any of the several typical cider houses of the zone. Basque Secrets-Tour of Art
