There was an important fishing industry, both inshore and deep sea fishing, between the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries. Whales, sardines and cod have traditionally fished here. Nowadays, it is famous for its cultural and artistic resources, due to the Cubes of Memory, the masterpiece by Augustín Ibarrola.
