Santo Tomás brings all of the flavours of rural Basque life to Bilbao. Throughout the day, farmers exhibit their animals and it is possible to purchase cheese, ring-shaped pastries, honey, sweets, fruit, vegetables or home-made products. Thousands of people enjoy this popular, pre-Christmas festival, which is held in El Arenal and the Plaza Nueva. In both areas, you can savour a “talo con chorizo” (spicy sausage in a corn tortilla) washed down with “txakoli” (white wine), and enjoy Basque singing, “txalaparta” (Basque wooden percussion instrument), “trikitixa” (Basque diatonic button accordion) and other traditional sounds.
