San Vicente de la Barquera

This is one of the oldest and most beautiful maritime settlements in northern Spain; it was an important Roman port long before many other shipping centers (such as Santander) had gotten firmly established. The 28 arches of the ancient bridge Puente de la Maza, which spans the ría, welcome you to town.
