By participating to this tour you will then experience one of the most ``primitive`` activities of human civilization! You will learn step by step the process involved creating cheese


We will start the day visiting a real sheep farm, in the heart of the San Sebastian region, to taste and learn about one of the culinary icons of the area, Idiazabal cheese. During the tour, the owner will lead us through the farm and we will learn step by step the process involved creating cheese, from the feeding of the flock to their milking, the cheese making, and the storage of the cheese for their healing in the cold-storage room. After the tour it is time to taste some Idiazabal cheese from the farm, and if you wish can purchase local products in the little shop.

Following a beatiful road we reach to Loyola Sanctuary an imposing Baroque temple from the 18th century built around the birthplace of Saint Ignatius the founder of the Company of Jesus, the Jesuits, highlighting the basilica. Finally you’ll be just about ready for lunch. Today it will be in the countryside, and it could be in one of the typical Basque restaurants where you can savor the exceptional quality of the traditional  food like the famous “txuleta”, a delicious T-Bone steak, or the black beans stew and the cider of course!.
