Festivals and fairs


One Saturday in July every year, a Basque Sheepdog Show is held in Ispillueta field. The Euskal Artzain txakurra is the sole native breed of sheepdog in Baskland, and has been the fundamental tool and friend of Basque sheepherders since the Neolithic Age. The Show is sub-divided into three separate parts: issuance of the Official Canine Registry, Canine Aptitude Certificate and the Championship Competition of Euskal Herria.
