I think many of the houses looks a lot like swiss houses or houses from the Alps region with regard to the roofs (angels etc.) and Timber framings. If I didn't know better I would have guessed that some of the pictures above were from the Alps.

It is also interesting to see how more than one building share the same roof, like one can see in post #2 picture 3.

Kee posting!

Yes, traditional Basque architecture (especially roofs) does look somewhat alike to Alpine architecture, and it has much to do with the fact that the Basque Country is a quite mountainous region, with the Pyrenees in the east and the Basque Mountains in the west, so snow and ice are very common during autumn-winter and rain the rest of the year, and the roofs are prepared for that.

Yes! This is actually pretty common, especially in rural areas and older constructions.
