What to see in Getxo

Nestled along the Bay of Biscay, Getxo is a coastal town in the Basque Country of Spain, known for its charming seaside promenade, vibrant cultural scene and stunning landscapes. With its picturesque beaches, historic landmarks and lively atmosphere, Getxo offers visitors a delightful blend of relaxation and exploration.

Begin your journey in Getxo with a leisurely stroll along the picturesque seaside promenade, known locally as the "Paseo de la Ría." Stretching for several kilometres along the Bay of Biscay, this scenic pathway offers stunning views of the rugged coastline, sandy beaches and azure waters. Take in the fresh sea breeze as you wander past charming fishing boats, colourful beach huts and bustling cafes and restaurants. Pause to admire the historic lighthouses that dot the coastline, providing a beacon of light for sailors navigating the treacherous waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

No cruise to Getxo would be complete without experiencing the iconic Puente Colgante, or Vizcaya Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the oldest transporter bridges in the world. Spanning the Nervión River, this remarkable feat of engineering connects Getxo with the neighbouring town of Portugalete. Take a ride on the suspended gondola which transports passengers and vehicles across the river in a thrilling journey suspended high above the water. Marvel at the intricate ironwork and elegant design of the bridge, which was built in the late 19th century to provide a vital link between the two towns.

Immerse yourself in Getxo's maritime heritage with a visit to the historic Old Port, or "Puerto Viejo," a charming waterfront district that is steeped in history and tradition. Wander along the cobblestone streets lined with colourful fishermen's cottages, lively taverns and artisanal shops. Discover the rich history of the Basque fishing industry at the Maritime Museum of Bilbao, located in the heart of the Old Port. Explore interactive exhibits, historic artefacts and multimedia displays that trace the evolution of maritime trade, navigation and fishing techniques in the region. Learn about the traditional fishing methods used by generations of Basque fishermen, as well as the cultural significance of the sea in Basque society. Marvel at the intricately carved wooden boats, fishing nets and nautical instruments on display, and gain insights into the daily lives and customs of coastal communities.
