Urrugne - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques

The common Urrugne has the distinction of being considered a village, but is actually one of the largest municipalities in the Basque Country, since it extends over 5000 hectares. It offers a wide variety of landscapes from the mountain cliffs of the famous Corniche Basque dominated by the coastal footpath.

In addition, Urrugne shares a border with Spain and is thus close to major Spanish cities such as Irun, Hondarribia and San Sebastian.
