Continuing the tourwe will stop in the charming village of Getaria for the artisan anchovy processing workshop. During the visit a member of the family will tell you how we elaborate the anchovy in oil and vinegar, the maquerell, smoked fish…You will discover how laborious is the elaboration of the anchovy in oil and if you dare, you can even fillet your own anchovy. Furthermore, you will take home the anchovies you make! After the tour we will end with a very local tasting: anchovy, white tuna and a glass of txakolí (local white wine).
After the tasting, we will visit Getaria. Having set the mood with this savory visit, you’ll be just about ready for lunch in one of the typical grilled fish restaurants at the harbor of the captivating fishing town of Getaria. Before lunch, we will go into town and take pleasure in a relaxing stroll through the enchanting Medieval streets of the center, and the picturesque color and charm of the fisherman’s houses with their beautiful wooden balconies.
