The charm of the fishing villages
San Vicente de la Barquera
Summer has a special flavour in the north of Spain.
These are the ideal months to explore the fishing villages of Green Spain: Cudillero, Llanes and Ribadesella in Asturias; Laredo, Santoña and San Vicente de la Barquera, in Cantabria; and Baiona, Ortigueira, Viveiro and Sanxenxo, in Galicia. Kilometres of beaches and stunning natural landscapes await you in these locations. The pleasant climate to be found here at this time of year makes summer the ideal season to enjoy a unique setting between the mountains and the sea. These are towns and villages whose streets are steeped in art and history, and where nature is ever-present.
These places have real seaside flavour and offer a varied range of activities: excursions, water sports and activities, hiking, adventure sports, gastronomy, cultural events... There is something for every taste and every age. Don't miss the chance to get to know this unique part of Spain, where the deep blue of the sea meets the luxuriant green of the countryside. This is what you'll find in Spain's fishing villages. Are you going to pass them by?
