Rich in History
Rich in life and history, owner of a multicolor, steep and labyrinth-like fishing neighborhood, Bermeo was founded in 1239. There are no remains of this time, but it does have monuments from the 14th Century, when the village became fortified.
The Tower of Ercilla, the cloister of the Church of San Francisco and the temples of Santa Eufemia and Santa María give the village a delicious medieval flavor.
In Bermeo everything revolves around the port since almost 800 years ago. It concentrates people, streets, alleys and stairs.
Protecting the most important fleet of ships in the Cantabrian, the great docks fosters the busy marketplace, taverns and bars.
