"Getxo" ("Guecho" in Spanish) is a town located in the province of Biscay, in the autonomous community of the Basque Country, in the north of Spain.
It is part of the metrpolitan area of Bilbao (Greater Bilbao), and has about 83,000 inhabitants. Getxo is mostly an affluent residential area, as well as being the third largest municipality of Biscay.

History
Getxo was a parish ("anteiglesia", "elizatea"), 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 Getxo" (Spanish) (both mean Our Lady of Getxo), not far from the headland called Punta Galea.

The town"s coat of arms has an oak with two cauldrons chained to its branches and the motto "Kaltea Dagianak Bizarra Lepoan" (Basque for "He who makes evil, the beard at his back").
Areeta and Portugalete. It is called the "Puente Colgante" of .
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 Areeta in basque and Las Arenas (Spanish for "The Sands") was built. Near "Areeta / 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.

Getxo, as well as the surrounding area known as Uribe-Kosta, grew rapidly in the last decades of the 20th century. While in the early 80s the town had only 50,000 inhabitants, it has now more than 83,000. The surrounding towns of Leioa, Berango and Sopelana have also seen multiplied their population in the same period.

Administration

Getxo"s office of Mayor has been continuously in the hands of the Basque Nationalist Party (EAJ-PNV) since democracy was restored in 1978 (). Since 1991, the major opposition party has been the Partido Popular. Other parties represented on the Town Council are the Socialist Party of Euskadi (PSE-EE) and the United Left (IU).


Getxo has five different districts, which serve administrative and electoral purposes: Algorta, Las Arenas, Romo, Santa María de Getxo and Neguri.

Transport and Tourism

It is possible to travel to Getxo from Bilbao using the city"s modern underground Metro system, which has 5 stations in the town. Getxo is also accessible from Portugalete, by means of the "Puente Colgante" transporter bridge. The ferry "Pride of Bilbao" reaches Portsmouth from Getxo"s neighbour Santurce, and Bilbao Airport is also not far away in Loiu ("Lujua" in Spanish).

Getxo has some tourist appeal with easy access to several beaches, and to the regional economic capital of Bilbao. It has a yacht harbour, a golf course, and several sports complexes (both public and private). A dynamic, semi-autonomous Department of Culture organises many events on a regular basis, including several international music festivals given over to jazz, the blues and folk.

The town has many houses of architectural interest, including the Town Hall and several churches, as well as private dwellings belonging to members of the wealthy industrialist class of Biscay. The Old Harbour district of Algorta and several parks with views across to the bay called the Bilbao Abra are also worth a visit.
