Following the ports of Bilbao and Bayonne, Pasaia is the 3rd port in the Basque Country. The main peculiarity of this bay – one of the only in the world – is that the port and town, town and port are physically unique. But is the mental boundary between the two increasing? What’s the point of having a port as a neighbor? In order to answer these questions, a 'Water in the Water' session will be held in the municipality.
From the spectacular images of the bay of Pasaia, the work of the 150-meter freight maneuver will see Xavier fishing directly from the fishing world at night.
39-year-old Eneko Sistiaga Pasai Donibane lives half her life in port loading. He received testimony from this father as a dangerous work, and, as he acknowledges, the port is completely enchanted. Not aware of the harshness of the port for its citizens, it does not represent the Passage without ports; in his opinion, it is one of the only elements that make it popular.
The Passage we know today has nothing to do with the 85 year old landscape. Serafina Puy Lekuona, a former donor from Donegal, says this. The green pastures and hills that he saw from the window at a young age, along with the development of the fishing industry, became a scattered row of chaotic homes. His house also has many peculiarities, as it is built on water. It is also one of the most spectacular examples of the border between the port and the town, since it is a state terrace.
Leave Pasai Donibane, and Pasai San Pedro will go to Xabier Madariaga, the only means of transport that allows direct communication between the two peoples: of course, by sea. Pasai stop at the Eye of San Pedro tavern, and Xabier Madariaga, along with Xabier Isasa and Joseba Otxo, will receive the opinion of San Pedro's young people who live in the port.
Garbiñe Eizagirre will join Trintxerpen. History has always been the neighborhood of San Pedro. Trintxerpe grew dramatically over the years as the fishing industry developed and became the most populous of the four districts.
However, as a result of the fishing crisis of the 1970s and 1980s, the number of inhabitants decreased significantly; Garbiñ lived from this decline, working in the Lasa shipyard until it was closed.
Javier Esnaola, a son of the port, can be said to have been in the port: being his father's and his brother's work place, it was his playground; he recalls that "he could now walk free of staff and machinery." He started working at the famous Luzuriaga factory, but when they closed, the passage changed dramatically. All the factories in the area were also closed, and it seems to have become a sleeping city today.
Finally, the architect Jon Ander Agirre will provide a professional and curious perspective on the unique landscape. Report on the port, which will show us the atmosphere of Pasaia Bay, Tuesday night at 10:00 pm ETB1 and eitb.eus.
