San Sebastia farmer market visit
At 9:30 we will start with morning tour of San Sebastian, discovering the city's history and its hidden gems, corners, traditions and people. Besides the historical Port and the Old Town of Donostia, we will wander around the farmer market La Bretxa, where they sell local ecological produce seasonal fresh vegetables, fruits, fish and cheese.
After that, we will make an excursion to see where the local cheese comes from: we will visit a basque farm in the green hills surrounding the city, where a shepherd will do a shepharding demonstration to show us how he works with his dog and sheep. A fascinating show of a local tradition that has become a "rural sport" ("herri kirolak" in basque).
This farm produces the traditional Idiazabal cheese from unpasteurized milk of the basque "latxa" sheep. This famous, award winning local cheese with a smokey flavor has the best quality and is the most popular in the Baque Country. We will learn about the cheesemaking process and in a workshop you will be able to try it yourself.
We will top the day off with a generous basque farmer lunch - lamb, potatoes, salad, cheese, wine and bread.
