  • The statue is located in beautiful surroundings in the old town of Guetaria. Holidays has plenty of life, because to their kids play around. Information about "Getaria Turismoa" statue: the first statue dedicated to Juan Sebastián de Elcano was built in 1800 by order another illustrious marine and scientific getariarra, Manuel de Agote and Bonechea, who for decades was the first factor of the company of Philippines in Guangzhou (China) and which at the time was Mayor of Getaria. This statue was badly damaged as a result of the Carlist assault suffered the town in 1836, during the first Carlist, and was withdrawn. Not is conformed them getariarras to remain without a just monument to Elcano, so in 1860 the Town Hall requested the help of the Diputación Foral. Both institutions paid for the new bronze statue, the artist Antonio Palao, which was established in 1861 on the door of the villa sea platform. This magnificent work also suffered the consequences, in this case of Franco's totalitarianism, since she was snatched from its original place to be arranged next to the shrine of the Queen of the seas, which opened in 1941 in memory of the sailors killed in the sinking of the Cruiser Baleares during the Civil War. Do not forgot Getaria this affront and the statue was reinstated to its original position after the death of the dictator in 1975.
