Getaria is our origin and destination. As well as the destination of sailormen like Elkano and many other anonymous who sailed around the world. Getaria is party: is the noise of San Salvador church bells, small but with a great echo. Getaria is sea, fishing, boats getting into the port, siren calls and unloading fish that give us life. Getaria is pure taste, high quality gastronomy, small producers that work with the best offered by the sea and the land.
Getaria is the art of grills, with a street aroma that captivates. Getaria is sewing: the stitches of the fishing net fixer ladies on the port and great couturiers like Balenciaga. Getaria is peace looking to the horizon, sunsets on the beach and laughter of children playing on the shores of the Basque Sea. Getaria is fun, musical notes and tasting notes of the txakoli that is born in the vineyards soaked by salty residue. Getaria is waves, big when the Basque Sea is angry, small when it is quite. Getaria son lucecitas al amanecer, de txipironeras con pequeños piratas de incalculable paciencia. Getaria is tiny lights at dusk that come from the small fishing boats commanded by pirates with a great amount of patience. Getaria is adventure. That is Getaria, a real adventure.
