Fodor's Review

Follow the Sare Valley up to the panoramic Col de Lizarrieta and the Grottes de Sare. Just outside these huge caves, you can learn about the Basque region's culture and millennia-long history at the Musée Ethnographique (Ethnographic Museum); then take a multilingual guided tour that leads 1 km (½ mile) underground to see a subterranean son-et-lumière (sound-and-light) show.
