Victoria-Gasteiz, Basque Country, España
Let’s see if we can get back on track here!? ……………… while in Bilbao, we decided at the last minute to head on over to Victoria to drop off some parts to our mutual buddy, Iñaki aka Txipi. Though with the intentions of doing a little sightseeing. Victoria is often overshadowed by the other more prominent Basque cities but boasts the best preserved medieval center of all the Basque cities and has impressive renaissance architecture. When you walk into the medieval city center is leaves you in an “awe”. It’s not very often a Yank encounters buildings dating back to the 1500’s surrounded by a wall from the 11th century along with several impressive watchtowers! It’s really a breathtaking experience. Well, after cruising around and making tons of pictures we hit an old medieval looking tavern and had some pints with some awesome pintxos. Needless to say, the day spent in Victoria was worth the drive. Big shout out to Iñaki and Mikel Martinez! …….. Muchas gracias por la pasada. Lo pase genial!
