Ondarroa, which means boca de arena or mouth of sand, is a quaint fishing town in Bizkaia. Founded in 1327 the old quarter is home to roman and medieval architecture, narrow cobble stone streets and historic monuments.

Here the river Artibai has carved its way through the mountains winding its way through the city to meet the ocean. In fact, portions of the town were built on top of sand banks and the beach. It is the perfect setting for unloading, processing and packaging some of the finest seafood in Spain.

When you arrive in town, the first thing you will notice is the church of Santa María and the Likona Tower. From magnificent Flemish style sculptures to the gate of Gipuzkoa, where fisherman used to pray for a safe journey, the tour will take you through the pretty cobble stoned historic quarter to the port. After your visit, we can provide recommendations where to enjoy a fresh seafood lunch at your leisure.
