Gipuzkoa offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the rich spectacle of Basque rural sports. Most local festivals include some exhibitions and festivals of this sort. If you're in a town in Gipuzkoa during the local fiestas, be sure to ask and you may have a chance to enjoy an unforgettable spectacle. In July and August, there are a range of rural sports to be seen every Wednesday in the “Lege Zaharren enparantza” square: stone-lifting, log-chopping, sawing, weight-carrying and anvil-lifting.
