Camino del Norte
→ 5.20 → Getaria → 1.80km → Askizu
The old town of Getaria sits on the shallow bit of land that leads from the mainland to the Monte San Anton and is small enough to take in on your way through town.
Do spend at least a few minutes visiting the Iglesia de San Salvador, whose wonky sloping floor makes for a curious feel.
On the other end of the cultural spectrum, fashionistas or lovers of curated collections should visit the Cristobal Balenciaga Museum.
April: San Prudencio on the 27th.
May: Antxoa on the 3rd, San Isidro on the 4th, and the Day of the Fisherman on the 5th.
June: San Juan on the 23rd and 24th.
August: San Salvador on the 6th.
November: San Martín on the 11th.
If you came into Getaria along the N-634 you will have to climb up to rejoin the camino.
If you came into Getaria along the trail you will have to decide whether you want to descend into town (and then return) or whether to keep on walking.
The camino passes the Kanpaia Albergue at the highest point in town and continues along country lanes. It passes the Ermita de San Prudenzio (300 meters off the trail, has a fountain but is usually closed) and brings you directly to Askizu.
