Getaria is the Perfect Basque Country Getaway

Getaria, the small fishing village in Spain's Basque Country, is a surprising place. The town of 3000 has a world-class museum–the Balenciaga Museum–a Michelin-starred restaurant–Elkano–along with four or five other destination restaurants, Txakoli wineries to visit, artisan cheese makers curing Idiazabal and other cheeses, stunning coastline, an active fishing port and professional fish market, and an anchovy and sardine canning facility offering tastings.
