SAN VICENTE DE LA BARQUERA
Vicente de la Barquera is a fishing village situated in one of the most
remarkable natural locations in the north of Spain. Here we only have space
to mention a few of its historic buildings - the parish church of Nuestra
Señora de los Angeles, built between the 13th and 16th centuries
and an excellent example of the so-called "Montañes Gothic" style,
San Luis convent, which dates from the 15th century, the castle and fortifications
of 8th century origin and the Corro family's mansion, built in the 16th
municipality is endowed with some excellent beaches ranging from a vast
expanse of sand several kilometres in length to a number of tiny coves.
The quality of the sand and the cleanliness of the water have resulted
in the facilities being awarded the EEC's "Blue Flag" over the past few
taste of the sea on your plate" is an expression that aptly describes the
district's cuisine, for locally-caught fish and seafood are the mainstay
of the local gastronomy.
5.000-hectare Oyambre Natural Park is a unique ecosystem comprising sea-cliffs,
beaches, dunes, meadows, estuaries, salt-marshes and coastal hills, with
the "Picos de Europa" forming an impressive background.
