Two of the most critical political images of the Basque Country can be found in Guernica – the Biscayan Assembly House and the Guernica Tree.
This is because of the way that both of these areas are the place the Lords of Biscay and Basque lawmakers have meet to choose the destiny of the Basque individuals.
All through the Middle Ages in Europe, it was normal for pioneers of different groups to meet up under a tree to make laws and make understandings.
The Guernica Tree is one such tree that was utilized as a gathering point for the Basque people group and the Lord of Biscay.
It was underneath its branches where the Lords of Biscay promised to regard the Biscayan freedoms and where they built up an arrangement of laws known as "fueros," that conceded the Basques self-governing standard.
The fueros were allowed by each Lord of Biscay and in the long run the King of Castile until the point when the finish of the nineteenth century when the Carlist Wars started.
Hence, the Guernica Tree has turned into an image of Basque character and filled in as an impetus for the Basque autonomy development.
