Portugalete is a town lying to the west of Bilbao in the province of Biscay in the Autonomous Community of Basque Country, northern Spain. The town is part of Bilbao's metropolitan area, it is located on the left bank. Its land area is only 3.21 km², resulting in a population density of 15,908.4 persons/km², the fifth-most densely populated municipality in Spain. In 1300 Portugalete became the main competitor port for Bilbao, but it lost its predominant position in 1511 when the trade privileges were granted to the Port of Bilbao instead of Portugalete. Despite its name, it is not near the Spanish border with Portugal and its name is not etymologically related with that country: it derives, from a phonetic adaptation of its Basque name to the Spanish language; the city has a transporter bridge. The car ferry is suspended from a frame by wires attached to wheels on tracks above the cabin and moves from one side of the River Nervión to the other via a traction system; this bridge was declared a World Heritage Site on 13 July 2006.
The festivals last four days, from 14 to 17 August, the main festivities occurring on 15 and 16 August, San Roque Day. The people sing the song "La Diana Portugaluja" outside the Town Hall in the morning of 15 August to mark the eve of San Roque Day. Monuments in Portugalete include the 15th century Basílica of Santa María, Salazar's Tower, the town hall in addition to the old mediaeval arches and streets in the older part of the city.

Founded in 1 January 1913 it plays in Tercera División – Group 4, holding home games at Estadio de López Cortázar, with an 8,500-seat capacity. Founded in 1913, Basconia reached the national third level thirty years later; the club played in the second tier for six seasons, but this was before the creation of the regionalised new third division in the 1970s. In 1997 Basconia became Basque neighbours Athletic Bilbao's feeder club, not being eligible for promotion if the reserves, Bilbao Athletic, playing in the above level, did not attain the same goal. Several first-team players made the gradual transition before playing in La Liga and European competition. Basconia’s place in Athletic's club structure means that the squad changes each season. About half of the players move up to play for Bilbao Athletic, or go out on loan to other local clubs playing at Segunda División B level.
They are replaced by graduates 17 or 18 years old, from the previous year's Juvenil A team. The squad is expanded further with new signings from the regions’s youth clubs, most notably Danok Bat and Antiguoko. Although the players and coaching staff of the main squad are controlled by Athletic Bilbao, Basconia retains its own club committee and staff and operates several youth teams as well an amateur side who compete in the Preferente de Vizcaya league, two levels below the first team; these other teams play in a separate small stadium in Soloarte. The main squad has been supplemented by some of Basconia's'own' players in emergencies - Mikel Rico was with Basconia B when he appeared in one Tercera División fixture in 2001, he left Biscay for a long career across Spain which brought him back to the senior team of Athletic in 2013. In January 2018, with the team struggling to remain in the division, Basconia took the unusual step of recruiting some older, more experienced players – Thaylor Lubanzadio, Adrián Celador and Iker Amorrortu – to help them maintain their 23-year league status, accomplished.
