03/09/2020 |

To start the day full of adventures, what better than getting off to an early start and enjoying a tasty breakfast at one of the coffee and pastry shops we have here in Tolosa.

Once you’ve charged your batteries, our first recommendation is to visit the Tolosa Market, open from 9.30 in the morning. In the Tinglado and Triángulo sections you’ll find quality seasonal produce at the more than sixty stalls. In the Plaza de Verduras you’ll find a wide variety of plants and flowers, and in the Plaza Euskal Herria stalls selling goods and textiles.And you won’t have to worry about the current situation because the stallholders and locals observe all of the necessary prevention and safety measures.

To continue the morning, we propose a journey into the magical world created by puppets at the Topic Museum. This is a great place to visit with your family, friends, partner or by yourself. Did you know that this is the most important International Puppet Centre? As well as being a permanent museum, it also runs temporary exhibitions. Take a look at the website to see what exhibitions are now on! The Museum opening hours are 10:30 to 14:00 and 15:30 to 19:00.
