Northern Spain 15 days

We know that we left out many essential places, but as we did not travel by private car, we had to make a route depending on the schedules and communications between the different towns or cities.

We decided to walk along its wonderful promenade contemplating the beaches of Riazor and Orzán. Taking off the stress of the flight between talks and photographs we arrived at the Tower of Hercules, the oldest lighthouse in the world.

Here the wind whips with fierce and fierce force on the shores of the Bay of Biscay, but in turn exudes a sense of free and untamed nature. We continued strolling among the famous dolmens and recreating ourselves among other cultures while we could practically taste the sea saltpeter.

Culture cannot be missing in our routes, so we decided to stop by the famous Campoamor Theater. And although due to lack of time we could not enter to see any play, visiting one of the most emblematic buildings of Asturias was worth it.

We decided to get into the hustle and bustle, and there we caught the whirlwind of traffic in the areas of the Fontán Market, full of stalls and restaurants, which together with its brightly colored houses make that walk a real spectacle of lights, sounds and smells. A must!

You will also feel that union with the environment in Ribadesella. The town, famous for the descent of the river Sella at the beginning of August, is a natural paradise that is very close to the Jurassic Museum of Colunga, the Bufones de Pría and the impressive beach of Gulpiyuri.

Before ending our journey through our beloved homeland, we can make a stop in Llanes, an emblematic place that has triumphed in the movies and whose rugged coastline, its palaces and its port remain in the memory of its visitors.

If the business card of Cantabria is Comillas, you know that the trip will be successful. The place famous for Gaudí’s El Capricho is an essential stop on our itinerary through the north of the Iberian Peninsula. But Comillas does not end with the work of the Catalan architect, both its beach and the neo-Gothic palace of Sobrellano are impressive.

We enter the Basque Country through the big door: Bilbao. A city that needs at least two days to see it. The Arriaga Theater, the Guggenheim Museum, the seven streets of the old town… The city offers a lot to its visitors. No matter the time of day, Bilbao always has things to see.
