A recent Game of Thrones filming location, this solitary stone hermitage clings to a rocky promontory over the Bay of Biscay. A narrow, 231-step passageway connects the 10th-century chapel (perched on what would otherwise be an island) to the mainland, forming one of the region's most dramatic—and photogenic—landscapes. Bilbaínos visit the hermitage on holidays for good luck.
