Fisherman day in Pasaia
Do you feel the call of the sea? Now you can accompany the fishermen and learn about the art and skill of handling a vessel. You'll board a fishing boat and set sail in search of a good catch in the rich waters of the Cantabrian Sea, to then visit the fish markets, guilds, ports and lighthouses, immersing yourself in this Basque maritime culture that gives us a taste of salt, sun and freedom. Immerse yourself in the Basque seafaring culture in one of the most important and impressive ports across the entire northern peninsula, the port of Pasaia, whose terrain has provided natural shelter against the ferocity of the Cantabrian Sea. Natural access to the port is so narrow that it seems impossible that a boat could sail through.

Tidal area or flysch (Zumaia - Deba - Mutriku)
The term in Spanish 'rasa' or 'abrasion platform' is used to refer to the flat surface along the coastline, the formation of which is caused by the erosion of cliffs due to the effect of the waves. It consists of a series of strata which alternate hard layers (limestone and sandstone) with soft ones (loam and clay rocks) and looks like a cross section of puff pastry

Surfing Zarautz: Birthplace of great surfers
Zarautz Beach has witnessed the first attempts at surfing the waves of sportsmen who are now important figures in the surfing world, such as Hodei Collazo, Aritz Aranburu or Ibon Amatriain. Its characteristics as a beach that is open to the Cantabrian Sea and its waves, as well as the International Surf Championships held there in September, make the town the ideal place to start out in this sport. Surfers can enjoy waves of up to 3 metres’ high and the mild temperatures which are maintained throughout the year mean you can surf all year round. If you would like to learn this sport you should know that the town has five surf and bodyboard schools and numerous shops selling specialised material.

Shrine of Loyola
In the First Room there are many liturgical vestments and objects, valuable either on account of their antiquity or artistic quality. All of them are duly labeled. In the Second Room, the frontage if occupied by the altar of the old Manresa Chapel that used to be on the first floor of the Tower-House. It is a fine item of woodwork of plateresque style, all of it of mahogany, made in the workshop of Saturnino López Gómez, known as the “hunchbacked man from Burgos.” In the center there is a reproduction of the Cave of Manresa, made in wood pulp, which shows St Ignatius writing the Exercises under the inspiration of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Copies of the Book of the Exercises of various periods and in different languages are exhibited on the altar. The side niches no longer contain the mahogany statues of St Francis Xavier and Peter Faber, also by Saturnino López, which are now in the Hall of Honor of the Tower-House. The other show-cases contain a selection of chests of bronze, made in 1912 by Granda for the “Chapel of the Relics” on the second floor of the Tower-House.
