  • If you love peace and quiet, a rustic atmosphere and authentic local food, this is the place to go to. It's a bit off the beaten path, yes, but it's well worth the trouble to find it. If you have a gp...  more »
  • This was interesting but not worth the effort of locating it in the first instance as it perhaps appeals to a specific set of visitors.  more »
  • There is a sacred side to walk down (and back!), to access the Museum, after leaving his vehicle in a parking lot under - sized... The problem is that there are no tours all the time... not so we could practice any "activity", except to wait 1 hour... The store is lovely but small... We bought 2 cakes Basque individual, very good... I expect a structure more large-scale, basque cake still being one of the jewels of the local gastronomy. Finally, this visit was very quickly shipped... spend more time to descend and climb the Hill, in the shop itself...! If it does not participate in a workshop, it's more like a pretty pastry than a museum.

  • Immersion in Basque traditions. A high presentation in color of the recipe for the local cake by a Baker in love of his country. It is filled with anecdotes. Tasting cakes and presentations of antique furniture and tools. A store homemade. The individual tart with € 2, 4/6 shares at € 13. A good idea late in the day for the greediest. Entry between 6 and €8.

  • The visit and the small shop was very friendly. The "Baker" to humor and fact that we had a very good time. Taken €8 / pers is can be a bit pricey however.

The setting is very nice, people who cared about us were very friendly and more... we have all the secrets and tricks to redo the cake at home! Thanks for this beautiful basque day! I highly recommend!
