The Basque Country is an Autonomous Community of Spain that borders France. Also known as the Basque Country, one of its main attractions is its mountainous geography, such as the Basque Mountains or the Sierra de Cantabria to the south, and its natural parks. In fact, its highest mountain, Aitxuri, is located in the Aizkorri Natural Park. Rivers as important as the Ebro pass through Basque lands, as well as others such as the Bidasoa, the Urumea or the Oria.
