Small and Colorful
If you love ports as much as I do, then you will have a great time in Lekeitio. Located 55 kilometers from Bilbao has a very pretty old town, especially around “Gamarra Enparantza”, a place that was used since old times as a market, and that today links the old neighborhood of Dendari with the Arranegi one, inhabited by sea folks.
It is worthwhile to wander through these corners, but there is nothing like the town port to really have a good time. It is small and colorful, full of fishing boats painted in colors. The port of Lekeitio is alive at any time of the day.
In the morning it is quite fascinating to see the fishermen return with their catch and to select and separate the fish from the seafood and to prepare everything for the auction in the marketplace.
