Just 25 kilometers north of Bilbao, the capital of the province of Biscay, you’ll find Plentzia, a coastal town where you can enjoy Basque gastronomy at its best. You’ll get the chance to try delicious seafood dishes in the town’s restaurants and bars. Eating in Plentzia is a real treat for your taste buds.
The town is known in the province of Biscay as an ideal place to spend the summer, thanks in part to its river and its beach, both of which are tourist attractions.

In Plentzia you’ll find excellent fish and shellfish, associated with the purest culinary tradition in the Basque Country. Plentzia’s most popular dishes include marmitako and codfish a la vizcaína.

You should also know that the town hosts two gastronomic events that are well-known in the province: the Certamen de Quesos (Cheese Competition) in August, where you can try some samples of the famous Idiazabal cheese, and the Jornadas Micológicas (Mushroom Festival) in November, where you can try all kinds of pinchos made with different types of mushrooms. All that there is to eat in Plentzia can be paired with a glass of Txakoli de Vizcaya, the province’s most popular white wine.
