Bowling has a very strong traditin at the Basque Country, and is also very popular at Zerain. There has been as many as 14 bowling alleys throughout Zerain, but the most important is at the centre.
The aim of the game is to knock over the nine skittles at the end of the alley, without hitting the smaller “txaparro” that is in the way. Every player throws the bowl several times and the winner is the one knocking over more skittles.
The noise of the bowl rolling on the wooden board still attracts locals and visitors.
