The Spanish town of Bermeo is one of the most active fishing communities in the Basque area. Situated in a non-tourist area, it can easily be seen that during their time of siesta, the town comes alive with people peering out their windows, enjoying a late lunch by the water, or even flying down the narrow streets by motorcycle.
