This summer, Gipuzkoa Turismoa is committed to promoting experiences in the territory in its promotional campaign. Under the name of "Gipuzkoa bizitzeko", 5 people born outside the Basque Country who chose Gipuzkoa to live, tell us in different chapters their stories, why they chose this place in the world to settle, and enjoy an experience they did not know.

The campaign consists of 5 chapters, which are reflected in the form of a series as if it were an entertainment platform. The chapters are already available at www.gipuzkoaturismoa.eus. Below we present the protagonists, their stories and the experiences they have lived.
