Basque mythology is one of the richest in Europe, to the point that in the Basque Country it is said that “if it has a name, it exists”. So it is the ideal place for the muses to inspire the hundreds of artists who came from the whole planet, to create works of art on the skin.
The ancestral sound of the Txalaparta merges for three magical days with the sound of hundreds of tattoo machines. 21st century travelers find the perfect combination of culture, gastronomy and nature in the border town of Irún. Town located 20 minutes from San Sebastian and Biarritz (France) and just one hour from Bilbao, Vitoria and Pamplona. Discover the magical sensation of crossing on foot the International Bridge on the Bidasoa River that joins Spain and France. There are many who choose to stay in their rural houses in the middle of nature and explore the islands, beaches, meadows and marshes and forests that make up the Txingudi Bay, together with Hondarribia and Hendaye (France). Already since Roman times it was a relevant border city as witnessed by the Roman museum Oiasso and many pilgrims who enjoy Irún as the Camino de Santiago crosses its streets. In 2018 will begin a new annual pilgrimage to Irun, thousands of lovers of the Art of Tattoo of All the Planet attracted by its International Convention of Tattoo.
