We offer two complete and interesting links about Vitoria-Gasteiz and the Basque Country:
Vitoria-Gasteiz offers the visitor a cosy image with its pedestrian streets, large green spaces, a restored medieval quarter and a wide variety of ocio-cultural and sports activities. Besides the numerous parks and gardens, a green belt of parks on the fringes of the city has been created which are of ecological and landscape value and act as a genuine lung. These and other initiatives mean that it is considered to be one of the cities with the highest quality of life. In short, a city which entices you to stroll around its different areas.
Vitoria-Gasteiz has the green of its city parks and gardens, but also the colour of its stone. Its historic old quarter, declared a conjunto monumental - collection of historic buildings - in 1997, is one of the best preserved in the north of the Iberian Peninsula. Special mention should be made of St. Mary's Cathedral, which is undergoing a unique and pioneering executive plan of restoration that has been recognised by numerous awards and is, without doubt, the finest exponent of Gothic culture in our city.
