Euskal Herria

Español Euskal Herria

Euskal Herria (literalmente significa "país del euskera") es una denominación territorial documentada desde el siglo XVI. Abarca siete territorios históricos: Alta Navarra, Álava/Araba, Gipuzkoa, Bizkaia, Baja Navarra, Labort y Sola. Está aceptado por los investigadores de la cultura vasca como hecho cultural de forma amplia, y por los nacionalistas vascos como ente posible político, independiente en algunos casos, o en otros, con colaboraciones estables entre los territorios.

Euskara Euskal Herria

Français Pays basque

Le Pays basque est un territoire qui s'étend à l'ouest des Pyrénées, au bord de l'océan Atlantique. Il couvre un peu plus de 20.664 km² où habitent environ 3 millions de personnes. Il se divise en trois entités : deux communautés autonomes d'Espagne, la Communauté autonome du Pays basque, composée des trois territoires historiques d'Alava, du Guipuscoa et de Biscaye, qui constitue plus de 70 % de la population totale, et la Navarre qui représente plus de 50 % du territoire, et le Pays basque français pour moins de 10 % de la population et 15 % du territoire.

English Basque Country -
The Basque Country as a cultural entity (not to be confused with the homonym autonomous community of the Basque Country) is a region in the western Pyrenees that spans the border between France and Spain, on the Atlantic coast. It comprises the Basque Autonomous Community and Navarre in Spain and the Northern Basque Country in France. It has not political entity. It roughly corresponds with the homeland of the Basque language and Basque traditions. As such, it is a concept mostly used within Basque nationalism.

Notes and references

General remarks:

  • The WIKIMEDIA COMMONS Atlas of the World is an organized and commented collection of geographical, political and historical maps available at Wikimedia Commons. The main page is therefore the portal to maps and cartography on Wikimedia. That page contains links to entries by country, continent and by topic as well as general notes and references.
  • Every entry has an introduction section in English. If other languages are native and/or official in an entity, introductions in other languages are added in separate sections. The text of the introduction(s) is based on the content of the Wikipedia encyclopedia. For sources of the introduction see therefore the Wikipedia entries linked to. The same goes for the texts in the history sections.
  • Historical maps are included in the continent, country and dependency entries.
  • The status of various entities is disputed. See the content for the entities concerned.
  • The maps of former countries that are more or less continued by a present-day country or had a territory included in only one or two countries are included in the atlas of the present-day country. For example the Ottoman Empire can be found in the Atlas of Turkey.
