We will visit a mythical point of the Basque coast, the Hermitage of San Juan de Gastelugatxe, a mandatory stop for tourists and locals. This hermitage is built on the top of an island linked to the mainland by a bridge from the access road that leads to it and which is an attraction in itself. The path has more than 200 steps that we must overcome to reach the hermitage, a 10th century construction from where you can enjoy a spectacular view of the Biscayan coast.
In addition, the area is within a protected biotope, which also includes the nearby coast of Cape Matxitxako, the northernmost point of the Basque Autonomous Community and from whose lighthouse large cetaceans can sometimes be seen that roam this area of the Cantabrian Sea.
Later we can visit the world famous flysch of the Basque Coast Geopark, a landscape of high geological value with spectacular cliffs that fall over the Cantabrian Sea.
