The Northerners


Iñaki Irazabalbeitia
Played by: Jon Plazaola

The lead character of the show. He's a nearly-40-year-old Basque man who had never ventured outside Euskadi before the trip to Seville that changed his life.

  • Catchphrase: "Kabenzotz!", his go-to cursing line.
    • It doesn't actually mean anything per se: it's a religious curse in Spanish, modified to sound like a Basque word.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: In the second season, he acts this way with Carmen from time to time.
  • Dating What Mommy Hates: Maritxu absolutely does not approve his relationship with Carmen.
  • Fish out of Water: Upon arriving in Seville.
  • Oblivious to Love: His employee Nekane is head over heels in love with him, but he is completely unaware of it in the early episodes.
  • Real Men Cook: Before forcefully moving to Seville and eventually staying, he was the chef of the tavern he owns in San Sebastián. He continues serving as chef at the clinic's bar after buying it.


María Galartza
Played by: Ane Gabarain

Iñaki's absorbent mother. She decides to take him on the trip to Seville after a setback prevents her sister Bego from joining her.

  • Convenient Coma: She (quite literally) falls into a coma at the beginning of the series and wakes halfway through the season... just in time to find out Iñaki's life in the south is an absolute mess.
  • My Beloved Smother: When she's awake she controls everything her son does.
  • Relationship Sabotage: She disapproves of Iñaki's relationship with Carmen and goes out of her way to try and foil it. At one point, she teams up with Rober for this purpose.


Played by: Alazne Etxeberria

The waitress at the tavern Iñaki owns in San Sebastián. She has also been in love with him for quite a while.

The Southerners


Carmen Almonte
Played by: María León

The chief nurse at the clinic where Maritxu is hospitalized.


Roberto Almenar
Played by: Alfonso Sánchez

The doctor who treats Maritxu at the clinic. He is also Carmen's on-again, off-again boyfriend.


    Don Benjumea 

Cayetano Benito de Jesús Benjumea
Played by: Mariano Peña

An old rich man who is also hospitalized at the clinic.


José Gregorio Narváez
Played by: Salva Reina

The absent-minded hospital orderly.

  • The Ditz
  • Love Hurts: He falls for Don Benjumea's granddaughter Azucena, and proposes to her when he finds out she's pregnant... only for her to dump him when it turns out to be a false positive.
  • Motor Mouth: He can speak ridiculously fast, and is especially prone to do so when he's nervous. Combined with his thick Andalusian accent, Iñaki struggles to understand what he's saying in their first meeting.
  • Those Two Guys: Often seen wheeling Don Benjumea around.

How well does it match the trope?
