Getaria

On Wednesday afternoon, I drove west from San Sebastián, avoiding the highway. One of the seaside towns I stopped at - Getaria - had a striking combination of headland, port-marina and beaches overlooked by a dense pile of buildings connected by a maze of stairs. The location brought to mind something that Hergé might have used in a Tintin story. The town seemed to be sprucing itself up for festivities or longer term tourism. Certainly, if this town were in (say) England, then it would be crawling with tourists. Posted by Picasa

  1. My Spanish grammar teacher told me that the mountain on the headland is known as "the mouse". Take note, Muad'dib.
