Place Richard Briand: the Zazpiak-Bat Fronton

Description

Zazpiak-Bat means “7 in 1” and refers to the seven provinces of the Basque Country. This stunning colored wall was built in 1898 and is evidence of the sport played by the Basques, the first fishermen to settle on the island. Every year, it is host to the Basque Festival, an event that all visitors should attend. It is noteworthy that this fronton, the oldest in North America, is still standing after all these years.
