Abstract

Following the narrations of three generations of French travellers in the Basque Country over the 19th century, the text reconstructs the literary image the country and its people projected on their travel books. In some cases, those authors merely reiterated tired stereotypes about Romantic Spain, but in other cases they emphasized the existence of a singular people, and they also reflected and propagated the identitary discourse that the political, religious and intellectual elites were developing at the time.
