The Basque Block
The Basque Block Review
Boise boasts one of the highest concentrations of Basque descendants in the world, second only to the Basque country itself, and celebrates this heritage in this two-block slice of downtown. Here you'll find the city’s oldest surviving brick dwelling, once home to young shepherds, plus a historic museum and cultural center, restaurants serving authentic Basque food—try Leku Ona or Bar Gernika—and a Basque market with fresh local produce and wine from northern Spain. Every five years the international Jaialdi Basque festival is celebrated throughout Boise.
