    Department 64 has entrusted CEP Ospitalea with the mission of heritage education to the general public. I attended several outings with Anne and Emmanuel, the two mediators of the center: a pure treat to learn Basque heritage such as the architecture of Basque farms, the structure of villages, .... our two guides have the art of talking so well about heritage 👏👏👍 The exhibition on laxoa is also worth the trip: complete, very detailed as to the rules of the game with beautiful photographs.
