Hello friends, today I present you to the beautiful village of Bermeo, with this view from the port, I hope you like it, then some letters about the town.

The town of Bermeo is a Biscayan municipality of the Busturialdea region, in the autonomous community of the Basque Country, Spain. It is one of the most populated towns in the region of the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve together with Guernica and Luno, with around 17,000 inhabitants.

Founded in 1236, the town had the title "Cabeza de Vizcaya" from 1476 to 1602, being the main town of the Señorío de Vizcaya. It is for this reason that Bermeo enjoyed certain privileges and for what enjoyed greater relevance in front of the rest of the villas in the Juntas Generales de Vizcaya. To this we must add the oaths that the kings performed in the church of Santa Eufemia every time they visited the province.

Currently, it is a village rooted in the seafaring tradition, since its economy is based mainly on fishing and fish preserves.

It also has different tourist attractions such as the hermitage of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, the Ercilla tower (Fisherman's Museum), the San Juan Gate, the old town, the Atalaya and its cozy port, among others.
