San Juan de GaztelugatxeMay 15, 2017 in Spain
Here's the lowdown on this place:
As the guide says: San Juan de Gaztelugatxe is connected to the mainland by a man-made stone bridge. The bridge transitions into a narrow path that contains 241 steps and zigzags its way back and forth. Once there, you will find the church which has a bell situated along the front of its facade. According to legend, after you have completed the climb, you should ring the bell three times and make a wish.

I'm staying in Bilbao tonight, before starting my journey to Bayonne for the Camino del Baztán.Read more
