A City With History and a Charming Town

On this day trip, you will visit Guernika-Lumo, a city that went down in history because of the bombing that destroyed it in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War. Then, the route continues to Lekeitio, a picturesque coastal city where you can enjoy its port, its landscapes and the historic centre. There are beaches there too, so if you like the sea and sand a lot, and you are travelling in summer, take your beach gear with you.
