Hello friends and colleagues, today I present a view of the fishing village and the port of Elantxobe, I hope you like it, then some letters about the villa.

Elanchove (Elantxobe in Euskera and officially) is a Spanish municipality located on the northeast coast of the province of Biscay, 50 km from Bilbao, in the autonomous community of the Basque Country.

Elanchove is located on the eastern slope of the rocky mass of Cape Ogoño, which protects the fishing port, but whose enormous inclination forms a cascade of narrow and steep streets in which the houses seem to form a roof ladder that reaches the same shore from sea. This provision forces the town to have two completely separate accesses, one down to the port and another to the upper part, where a minimum flat width is the only thing that can be considered a square, with a magnificent viewpoint and an amazing rotating platform that They must use larger vehicles to be able to turn and leave the village.

The town emerged in 1524 with the fishing port, taking some importance in the seventeenth century as a defensive port of the Biscay coast, which currently has use as a marina. Until 1858 it was a neighborhood of the neighboring municipality of Ibarrangelu. He celebrates his employer's party on December 6, the day of St. Nicholas of Bari.

In the nineteenth century, the fishing industry of Elanchove is experiencing a boom, reaching seven pickling factories and one canning, including Conservas Garavilla (Isabel) and Canned Serrats.
