  • 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.

  • The Castle has a small room where pictures, are exhibited this time of Castro, very nice. The access is free. It's nice to come and stroll through the area, although preferably when not they blow wind.

  • Site to visit only 30 km from Bilbao. Many restaurants and bars where you can eat or drink. That Yes, get ready to pay for parking! No one is saved! It is a pity that want to profit as well from tourism... better would be to leave that money in a beer!
