Portugalete is located in the metropolitan area of Bilbao and on the Northern Way. Specifically, it is located on the left bank of the estuary, practically at the mouth of the Nervión on the Bay of Biscay.
A little history
As is to be expected, its origin and foundation are closely related to the development of the Bilbao enclave. Portugalete was foundedby María Díaz de Haro. It should be noted that the House of Haro was a noble family of the kingdom of Castile that held the title of Lordship of Vizcaya from the 10th to the 14th century.
