Language: Spanish

Description: Navarra was previously a kingdom of norther Spain and southern France, consisting of what is now Navarra in Spain and Basse-Pyrénées in France. Navarra now is a region of northern Spain between the Basque Country and Aragón with La Rioja to the south. Its capital is Pamplona, famous for its bull run. Sugar beet, vines and cereal crops are cultivated. In itself it has no particular reputation for its cuisine, except for its use of game and the freshwater fish that abound in its rivers and lakes, These are usually, as in the Basque Country, served with sauces such as chilindrón or cochifrito.
