Situated at the Vizcaya region coast, near Bilbao, about 30 km away, it's a very little island communicated by a little bridge as well. The views, the site, and everything around are amazing. To rise to the top, there is a little church there, you...More

One of the best spectacular sea views in the world. If you are in Bilbao this is a must, if you are further I am sure you can find how to get to this island and you will remember it all your life.

First of all: i haven't seen an episode from GOT! Found this place casually, because there was a big picture of It on the wall of my hotel room in Bilbao. I have asked more info about It to the receptionist and decided i wanted...More

Walked here from Bakio along what looks to be the old coast road. Not a long walk but quite hilly. The final path to the chapel, you do need shoes with a bit of grip especially if it has been raining. Fantastic views all the...More
