Paseo de las Grandes Villas

Area in Getxo

The Paseo is the unofficial name given to Getxo's seafront – made up of Muelle de las Arenas and Paseo Marques e Arriluce. The 'Villas' part of the name is a reference to the extravagant mansions that pepper the route, many of which date to the town's heyday in the early 20th century. Two to look out for are the Nordic-style Casa Cisco and castle-like Lezama-Legizamón.

The southern end of the seafront is marked by a monument to Evaristo Churruca, a 19th-century engineer who worked on the town harbour.
