History

Getxo was a parish (anteiglesia, elizaldea), originally a rural area, including a large beach at the mouth of the Estuary of Bilbao, centered on the little fishing village of Algorta. The parish council met at the church of Getxoko Andra Mari (Basque) or Santa María de Guecho (Spanish) (both mean Our Lady of Getxo), not far from the headland called Punta Galea.

With industrialisation in the 19th century, some parts of Getxo evolved into residential areas for the rich bourgeois class. A residential area called Neguri (Basque for "Winter Town") came into being. The village of Algorta grew around the church of San Nicolás and the canalisation of the firth, provided for the colonisation of the beach, where a district called Las Arenas (Spanish for "The Sands") was built. Near Las Arenas, on the other side of the road to Bilbao, there grew a working-class district called Romo, similar to the one that grew near Neguri: Neguri Langile. Finally, in the 20th century, urban development reached the rural areas of Santa María de Getxo. Image File history File links Puente_Colgante. ... Image File history File links Puente_Colgante. ...
