The continuous traffic of vessels along the Nervión estuary on their way to the commercial centre of Bilbao, converted the town of Portugalete into a port in ; which there was a daily presence of foreigners. The common living together of those born in Portugalete with these foreigners did not always take place in an ; atmosphere of collaboration. This report reflects certain episodes of both physical and oral violence, that took place in the port and seafront in Portugalete, mainly with English, Irish, French, Portuguese and Flemish sailors. The attitude, or attitudes, of the inhabitants of Portugalete with the foreigners that stopped in our waters is also reflected.
