Ports of Mutriku

Ports of Mutriku

Fishing port:

Description One of the oldest ports in Guipúzcoa, and the first to have stone dykes in the 13th century. It was one of the most important ports during Mediaeval times and linked since ancient times to whale-fishing. In fact, the oldest documents referring to this activity in Guipúzcoa are found in this coastal town. It was formerly a port of refuge, thanks to the natural bay in which it is situated. At the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century, the port was enlarged as indicated by Don Evaristo de Churruca, who prepared a project which, although not executed in its entirety, formed the basic outline of the existing port of Mutriku. At present another dyke is under construction to solve the historic problem of access suffered by the town of Mutriku.
