Tartalo is a famous character in Basque mythology. He was a giant cyclops and only had one eye. He lived in the mountains. It is said that he was very strong and fairly aggressive. He was the first shepherd in the Basque Country and he loved sheep. Children do not like Tartalo because he is scary but I like his story.
