Known for the bombings it endured during the Spanish Civil War, Guernica-Lumo is home to a gastronomic offering that you’ll love. Discover three of the main pillars of its cuisine: beans (which enjoy an excellent reputation), peppers, and of course Txakoli de Vizcaya, the most popular white wine in the Basque Country. All in all, eating in Guernica-Lumo is like taking a tour of the Basque culinary tradition, where fresh fish from the markets of the north and barbecued meats are the basis of many of the most common dishes in the town’s restaurants.
Pinchos, small dishes that can be creative or traditional, are another alternative when it comes time to eat in Guernica. The town’s market held every Monday perfectly showcases the town’s culinary tradition, especially the last market of October. And for something sweeter, be sure not to miss out on the delicious tarta Guernica, whose recipe is one of the town’s greatest secrets. If you visit around Christmastime, be sure not to miss the Marijeses, a tradition where the locals gather to sing hymns.
