Espelette- the beautiful Basque village in the south-west of France. Famous for its AOC production of Espelette peppers 🌶. They can be seen hanging outside many houses and shops and the dried hot powder is used in the production of the delicious Bayonne ham. Hint. If you can visit during "La Fête du Piment" held on the last weekend of October. Well worth fighting the crowds as the celebratory atmosphere is infectious.
