Contact us to advertise on or give information for this page

Originally a Roman outpost the town of Hasparren grew thanks to a thriving leather and shoe industry, fuelled by the now disappeared oak forests that surrounded it.

As well as working hard to maintain its industrial base it maintains a strong Basque heritage with pelote and the running of cows in the streets.
