  • Castle unique in its kind in Cantabria located on a rocky promontory which dominates the entire population built in the 12th century, possibly on the ruins of an old Roman fortification, has cylindrical towers and strong masonry walls and embedded in it we find a 19th-century lighthouse in operation today. In its interior you can visit a museum with exhibitions or walk around your yard of pentagonal shape.

  • The historic ensemble formed by Santa Ana Castle, the Church of Santa Maria and the medieval bridge is one of the most spectacular places of the Cantabrian coast. The visit to the ground floor of the castle is free (in my case, there was an exhibition of paintings), although the memorable are the views that are obtained from nearby Castro-Urdiales and the rest of the coast.
