Rising in the XVI°century, Orio(Gipúzkoa, Euskadi - Spain) is the typical estuary port , with a dock constructed on the eastern bank of the Río Oria beside the village.
The entrance bar, open to the north, north-west and north-east, was previously difficult to negotiate, but this problem has been solved by two piers facing north, although the channel providing access upriver is still narrow and can be dangerous.
Nowadays Orio is mainly a fishing port, where are based 9 purse seiners.
