Bakio is halfway between Gorliz and Bermeo. Famous for its red Txakoli, this coastal municipality experienced a tremendous real-estate boom in 1970.
What to see in Bakio
Bakio was not an independent village as such until 1927, when other jurisdictions annexed and formed this town.
In the 13th century, thanks to a period of economic boom, many families from Bakio built ironworks and mills; some of them can be seen today.
Apart from the mills, from a few years up to these days, the Txakoli is also part of the attractions of Bakio. This village has four wineries, including where the red Txakoli is obtained, and the Museum of Txakoli or Txakolingune, which provides audio-visual information about how this particular drink is made.
