  • A private home in Espelette, with red peppers hung to dry outside of the house, Pays Basque Region, France Some background information: Espelette is a little town in the administrative region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine in south-western France. It is located both in the department of Pyrénées-Atlantiques and in the traditional Basque province of Labourd. The commune is also situated in the valley of the Nive River in the Pyrenean foothills. It has more than 2,000 residents and is quite attractive because of its houses that represent the archetype of the rural so-called Labourdine traditional architecture and exterior decoration that is commonly referred to as the typical Basque houses. However, Espelette is mainly renowned for its dried red peppers, used whole or ground to a hot powder. The peppers that are called Piment d'Espelette are hung to dry outside many of the houses and shops in the village during the summers. The peppers from Espelette are designated as Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, which is a controlled French designation of origin. This means that they can only originate from the area around Espelette. The town’s Basque name "Ezpeleta" hints at an area covered with box trees. Espelette’s history dates back to early Middle Ages, when the lords of Ezpeleta erected a castle there around the year 1000. In 1059, the first member of this family, Aznar of Ezpeleta, was mentioned in a document. He was one of the twelve barons of the Kingdom of Navarra. At the beginning of the 12th century, the region passed to Aquitaine and with the marriage of King Henry II of England and Eleanor of Aquitaine in 1152, it came under English control, which lasted until the 14th century. In the early 16th century, chili pepper (most likely from Mexico) reached Espelette and the whole Valley of the Nive River, which the Piment d'Espelette originated from. It is said that they came from a Basque sailor, who had been going along with Christopher Columbus on his voyages across the Atlantic Ocean. However, in Espelette the cultivation of Piment d'Espelette is only traceable to the year 1650. By the way, ripe peppers from Espelette have a pungency of 2,500 to 4,000 according to the Scoville scale, comparable to the pungency of Original Tabasco Pepper Sauce. Therefore they are considered to be just mildly hot. During the Franco-Spanish War the then baron Bertrand II of Ezpeleta, sided with the Spaniards. As a consequence, his properties on French territory were confiscated by Cardinal Richelieu in 1637, and after his death in 1640 conferred on his sister Barbe. In the wake of the expropriation of Bertrand II, the residents of the Espelette destroyed the castle, but in 1670, it was constructed anew as a chateau. When Juliana Henrique, the last baroness of Ezpeleta, died without issue in 1694, she bequeathed both the chateau and the related estates to the residents of the commune. During the Reign of Terror in the course of the French Revolution, Espelette was declared an "Infamous municipality" by the Committee of Public Safety. At that time many inhabitants were kidnapped or dispossessed. In 1920, Agnès Souret, a resident of Espelette, became the first winner of the competition "La plus belle femme de France", predecessor of the national beauty pageant "Miss France". And in 1922, the commune itself was awarded the title "Village coquet de France" (in English: "Most beautiful village of France"). In 1955, another title was added, when Espelette was awarded "Prestige de la France". And finally, in 2019, the commune was part of the visiting programme for the first ladies of the G7 states, with Brigitte Macron and Melania Trump leading the way, while their husbands were meeting in Biarritz.
