  • J was accompanied by my 10 year old daughter and had chosen the workshop 1. In this workshop the head reveals the basque cake recipe and gives us the opportunity to make the cake. Full of tricks are revealed during this workshop. Very good time spent with the Chief and other participants.

  • Unfortunately we arrived around 1:30 and the next visit was scheduled for 15:00 we nevertheless bought cakes on-site it turns out that these are the best of our stay! Just flat out access with young children provide a stroller because the slope that leads to the Museum is not the easiest to get off with small and even less to go back

  • 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.
