Basque Fact of the Week: On January 20, Donostia Celebrates my Birthday… I mean, La Tamborrada

La Tamborrada is a 24-hour festival taking place every January 20, the feast day of the city’s patron Saint Sebastian, in Donostia. Over 100 different bands dressed as soldiers and cooks march through the city throughout the 24 hours of the day, starting at midnight.

    Your page brings me close to my grandmother (from ZiZurkil) and grandfather (from Biarritz). I have been following your posts for almost three years now. Keep going, thank you!
