Ruta Getaria
Basque Coast Getaria   Orio   Zarautz   Aia   Zumaia


Food lovers of all types and origins line up to visit Getaria, with the intention of tasting the local grilled turbot. The seafaring tradition blends with tourist and gastronomic attractions in one of the oldest quarters of Gipuzkoa that, in the Middle Ages, already sent out ships to bring back coveted whales from the ocean. Today, Getaria offers excellent preserves and salted foods, celebrates Antxua Eguna and every day its fish market receives exquisite fish, albeit smaller than the great whales of yesteryear, many of which end up on open-air grills. Some of these grills can be found near the monument that honours Juan Sebastián Elcano and Katrapona, the passage that runs under the Gothic church of San Salvador and connects Calle Mayor with the descent to the port, overlooked by the famous "mouse". After exploring, it is a good idea to mix with the locals, to evoke history with squid a lo Pelayo, to consider the revival of the Euskal Txerria, a native breed of long-eared pig and, of course, to drink Getaria’s famous txakoli, a wine that brightens up any gathering or celebration.
