Capital of the Basque Country, Vitoria-Gasteiz distinguishes itself from Bilbao and San Sebastián by its quality of life. In addition to its remarkable medieval quarter, two fine cathedrals and numerous museums, its pleasant parks and gardens saw it promoted to the rank of Europe's greenest capital in 2012. In the evening, its pedestrian streets and squares come to life. The arrival of spring signals the start of many cultural events, including the famous jazz festival in July - not to be missed.
