Puerto Viejo de Bermeo is the old harbour of this city, in the coast of Bizkaia Region, in Basque Country. This is the old town of thw city and really it is very nice, you can walk close to the sea and see the very beautiful colorful buildings. Also you can see the waves of the sea: impressive! and some very nice statues of the history of the city: fishermen, a wave and some others. If you like eating pintxos and txakoli (the wine of the region), it is a very good place.

Bermeo is such a charming Basque town! After parking our car on the street, we walked up the hill to enjoy beautiful views of the fishing harbor full of countless multicolored boats. Then we descended to the harbor to walk on the boardwalk and taking a close look at the picturesque boats. So lovely and atmospheric!

Bermeo dates back to the 13th century and some of the its old streets still never lost their authenticity. Despite its small size, Bermeo is one of the important fishing ports in the Basque Country; hence, the quality of the daily catch in its cozy restaurants.

The outskirts of the town and main port do not look promising and to be honest we nearly didn't go. Step round the corner to the old port and it's a different world. Good jetty walk, modern museum on fishing in the road above the restaurants and bars. NB the whaling ship museum is not there now.
To park follow the P signs through the town uphill out of the town and park in the rea with new blocks of flats. Walk through streets until you get to the older narrower streets of the old town and then down steep steps to the port.

The breakwater can be walked and it must be close to a km. in length. Looking out, the Bay of Biscay and the Atlantic Ocean: Looking back, all the narrow, multi-coloured buildings lining the malecon/cobble stoned road with good bars/restaurants on the ground floor.

This port still has fishermen leaving from it but not like during its peak when Bermeo was the capitol of the area, before Bilbao.

I did this on a hot day so the breeze felt great, the exercise was undoubtedly beneficial, and a glass of locally made white wine afterward, a reward.

A very beautiful town with a lot of atmosphere in the fishing port. The food is very good with skewers, a lot of quality food.

Bermeo is a Basque coastal town that was one of the main fishing ports in ancient times. It is considered that the old town of Bermio has retained many features since then, even if the town plan has of course changed, the oldest fountain is e.g. from the end of the 16th century.
And it is beautiful, the city receives thousands of tourists every year. We were here for far too short a time, but are already planning to come back, perhaps via those narrow gauge FEVE railways from Bilbao.
Note: The tide is clear up here in the Basque Country, pontoons slide up and down on strong stilts. It is said that the piles are painted in the same colors as the chimneys of the steamships that replaced the sailing boats that were destroyed in a terrible storm in 1912 when a total of 143 sailors died.
