Spain > Basque Country

The Basque Country (Basque: Euskadi; Spanish: País Vasco, IPA: [paˈiz ˈβasko]) is an Autonomous Community of northern Spain.

The Basque Country was granted the status of historical region within Spain with the Spanish Constitution of 1978. The capital is Vitoria-Gasteiz (Vitoria is the name in Spanish, Gasteiz in Basque) and Bilbao its largest city.

The autonomous community of the Basque Country should not be confused with the larger Basque Country (Basque: "Euskal Herria") of which it is a component part.
