    Fronton "Zazpiak Bat"

    by jamiesno Written Oct 10, 2006

    Since many Saint-Pierrais and Miquelonnais are of Basque Heritage, Basque tradtions abound adding to the local flavor.

    A type of handball called Pelote basque, a traditional Basque sport, is played against this massive outdoor wall.

    Zazpiak Bat is Basque for "The Seven Make One", this refers to the seven Basque Provinces located in Spain: Alava, Guipuzkoa, Navarra, Biscaya; and France: Basse Navarre, Soule and Labourd.

    The traditional game played in France is boules, also called p├ętanque.

    It requires as much dexterity as it does social skill, as it is frequently played in public squares as more of a gathering.

    Visitors wishing to join in may find it easier if they do speak French.
