XIV was a commercial enclave that enjoyed particular importance in the Cantabrian coast due to its port activity. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century suffered a strong industrialization that made it the 2 º most industrialized region of the country, just behind Barcelona, and with this there was also a large increase in population coming to annex neighboring villages. Currently the service sector is an increasingly growing economy.
Their tourist claims are many but perhaps at present the most notorious is the Gugenheim Museum. It also highlights the Arriaga Theater, the University of Deusto and the Chávarri Palace, headquarters of the Government Sub-delegation. In religious architecture we must highlight the Basilica of Nª Sra. De Begoña, the Cathedral or the Church of San Antón.
