Bermeo is a fishing town whose harbour preserves all its traditional local seafaring charm. The road to Bilbao has some strikingly beautiful coastal scenery visible from several viewing points.

Since its foundation in 1239, Bermeo has had a rich history. Testimony to this is the collection of monuments in town. The following have been declared to be of Historic-Artistic Interest: The cloister of the church of San Francisco, built in 1357; the tower of Ercilla, which is Gothic and currently houses the Fisherman's Museum; the church of Santa María; Santa Eufemia, a 'Juradera' church, probably the oldest in Bermeo; the City Hall, erected in 1732, on whose façade we can see two sundials; and Casa Kinkubera, catalogued under 'Basque rationalism', with a structure reminiscent of a boat.

Also worth highlighting are the arch of San Juan, from the 14th century, the historic quarter, where fishermen's houses with a medieval air skirt charming streets, squares and the old port.

Its bustling street life and its excellent restaurants are further reasons to stop at Bermeo.
