This town, located in the province of Gipuzkoa and considered one of the best-preserved medieval towns in the Basque Country, forms part of the Basque Coast Geopark, which is notable for its unique coastal landscapes and beautiful nature. From a gastronomic standpoint, the cuisine of Mutriku is closely linked to traditional seafood recipes. Thanks to the town’s fishing port, you can eat top-notch fresh seafood dishes including stews and other beloved recipes like marmitako, grilled monkfish with roasted potatoes, hake in green sauce, roasted txangurro (king crab), and cuttlefish.
Meat also plays a central role in the form of lamb steaks, sirloins, and ribs. When it comes to produce, vegetables can be found in all kinds of salads (dressed with various seasonal products) and vegetable stews, also very common when it comes to eating in Mutriku. Whatever you find yourself eating in Mutriku, we recommend pairing it with a regional specialty such as a handcrafted cider or a glass of the famous Txakoli de Getaria.
