Elantxobe

Elantxobe

Seaside municipality belonging to the historical territory of Bizkaia, Cape Ogoño and several cliffs shelter and protect Elantxonbe.

The smell of saltpetre leads the visitor to the port, core of the fishing activity. In 1783 some piers were built to stop the sea waves. They have been strengthened nowadays and, besides, they embellish the municipality's landscape.

Walking through the streets we can visit the parish church of San Nicolás de Bari, consecrated to the patron saint of sailors. Old sandstone walls housing numerous plants border the Calle Mayor Street.

Likewise, the staggered buildings will draw our attention. They all look towards the sea and seem to be waiting for the fishers.
