From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Cascarots (Basque: Kaskarotuak) are an ethnic group found in the Northern Basque Country. They are one of many Roma subgroups in Western Europe but not to be confused with the Erromintxela.
Historic documents mention the Cascarots living in ghettos, for example in Ciboure and occasionally entire villages such as the village of Ispoure.
