The Cascarots (Basque: Kaskarotuak) are a Romani-like ethnic group from Spain who settled in parts of the Basque country after the end of the fifteenth century.[1][2] Cascarots are descendants of marriages between Basques and Romani people.[3]


Historic documents mention the Cascarots living in ghettos, for example in Ciboure and occasionally entire villages such as the village of Ispoure.[4]
