    Although the major part of the parish of San Salvador is built between the 16th and 18 th c, it was actually started in the 1300's and celebrated the first General Assembly of Guiposcoa in 1397. Situated at the end of Calle Nagusia it has a passage through to the port that was one of the entrances through the ancient walls that surrounded the town.

    The church is open from 9h30 until the end of evening Mass.

    Calle Nagusia and San Salvador The monumental door. Nave windows and passage under the church.

    A very pleasant walk through the streets without too many tourists until 2 French tour buses turned up, then it got quite crowded. At the far end of Getaria behind the port is the San Anton peninsula. Until the 15th c it was an island but was joined to the port area byan artificial isthmus. You can climb to the top of the Elcano monument without too much effort although the staircases are rather steep. For once, the entrance id free.

    Main street of Getaria. The Elcano monument at the village entrance. Getaria town hall. View with San Anton peninsula.
