  • If you go through Getaria you can not miss the Church of San Salvador. Exponent of the so-called Basque Gothic, has numerous references that make it unique. The current building dates from the 15th century, although there was a temple since well before, and is a historical landmark by two facts. It is said that Juan Sebastián Elcano was baptized in it, and in this church the first general meeting of Gipuzkoa, met (year 1397). Inside it is clearly tilted and preserves very elevated with respect to the Church altar. Very curious the fact that below the apse becomes main street, from the port towards the town, and the tunnel (called passage of Katrapona) can be seen in a chapel. Under the choir there is a mezzanine, and as in many villas maritime, a nao hangs from the ceiling, as remember perennial of them marine.

  • The Church of Getaria, of style Gothic, dates from the century XIV. There says the history that is gathered by first time them together General of Gipuzkoa. Steeped in history. There are 3 ships, and the funny thing is that there are different levels in the soil, to adapt the Church to the ground. There is an upper arch (triforium) surrounding the temple. The old part of the city and the port are connected by a passageway that is below the Church. Curious. There is no altar, and the altar is raised. A very peculiar temple that will not leave you indifferent. You have to see it.
