Getxo is one of the most attractive and striking spaces in Greater Bilbao, a town on the move that lives facing the sea. 14 kilometers from the urban center of Bilbao, in the historic territory in Bizkaia, Getxo is one of those municipalities that offers us everything we need to know the history and culture of Euskal Herria, the essence of the Basque people.
It is guarded by the majestic Abra Bay, it offers us experiences of all kinds: fishing, sea crossings, gastronomic routes, paragliding … all kinds of sensations at at our fingertips.
The tour begins at the Bizkaia Bridge, affectionately the Suspension Bridge. A colossus, which in addition to being one of the most emblematic buildings in Euskal Herria, represents the most comfortable and practical to cross the estuary to reach the neighboring towns of Santurtzi or Portugalete. Declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco similar to the Eiffel Tower and that it continues to function as such since 1890.
Very close is the beach and all the palaces of the first century, mixing with the sea, the mountains and the locals who started in the area and who still live there today.
Municipality turned into one of the luxury spaces most demanded by the high social classes to spend the summer holidays of the first century.
At the end, the Old Port, the old fishing nucleus. A very picturesque place, where Bizkaians gather to enjoy friends and gastronomy in the summer season. Have something in the Stairs to the Old Port is a thing to do at least once in a lifetime.
The visit ends in the most Bilbao style, we are leaving pintxos !! (pintxo-pote included in the tour). The pintxo is the 5th essence, a snack the size of a bite. Enjoy your vacation with us.
During our tour, in which we explained the origin and development of the port, we visited four traditional places to taste the typical pintxos (a kind of Basque version of the
tapas), one of the specialties of the fabulous gastronomy of the Basque Country.
