Mi agradecimiento a @the_basque_soul por la difusión que hace de mi foto en su galería. Eskerrik asko! Thanks a lot !! 🏼♀️ #Repost with @Repostlyapp Take for example Vitoria’s medieval city center. Many buildings there date back to the 1500’s and earlier and are very nicely preserved. The almond-shaped center is also partly surrounded by a wall from the 11th century along with several impressive watchtowers.
The old town is home to several palaces as well. Bendaña and Escoriaza-Esquivel Palaces are two excellent examples of renaissance architecture that should not be missed. Bendaña Palace holds a museum dedicated to playing cards. It is a rather peculiar subject for a museum, but is none the less interesting. Outside of the old town there are a few “newer” palaces that are also worth a mention, such as the Palacio de Augustin-Zulueta, which now houses the Museo de Bellas Artes (Museum of Fine Art). Located directly across the way, is the Ajuria Enea Palace where the Lehendakari (President of the Spanish Basque Country) resides. This building is off limits to visitors, but you can still catch a glimpse of it from the outside.
