Parrillas of Getaria

Getaria is a unique town with a spirit of its own, and it's a great place to enjoy a real parrilla meal.

Getaria is a unique town with a spirit of its own, and it's a great place to enjoy a real parrilla meal. The large asador or grillroom, with its wrought ironwork, open fire and the unmistakable aroma of embers and food, offers a feast for the eye, nose and palette that is typical of the Urola Kosta region. This is one of the many jewels of Gipuzkoa's rich cooking tradition. Mounted in the open air outside the restaurants, attached to the front walls or spanning the footpath, parrillas are an essential part of Getaria's urban landscape, with passers-by stopping to pass the time of day with the flour-strewn parrilleros. Follow your nose and let the delicious smell lead you to one of these fine restaurants.
