Sorry, no etymologies found.
The low flat country round Baracaldo is covered with maize, pod fruit and vines.
During this period many immigrant labourers settled here; for the ironworks and dynamite factory of Baracaldo prospered greatly, owing to the increased output of the Biscayan mines, the extension of railways in the neighbourhood, and the growth of shipping at Bilbao.
Few Spanish towns have developed more rapidly than Baracaldo, which nearly doubled its population between 1880 and 1900.
