Museums in a region like the Basque Country in constant evolution and development of the Tourists sector are an increasing value. One of the last museums to enter in the Basque network is Cristobal Balenciaga Museum, in Getaria, Gipuzkoa.

This museum is devoted to show and interpretate the life and work of the fashion designer born in this small village of Gipuzkoa but who has given fashion fresh air.
