San Vicente de la Barquera
San Vicente, along with Laredo , Santoña and Castro Urdiales , are part of the group of coastal towns in Cantabria that are worth visiting. It presents the traveler with one of the most beautiful images of all the region; the city with its port, church, castle and with the Picos de Europa always in the background. In the township, there are six beaches and coves of incredible beauty: Fuentes, La Maza, Tostadero, Merón, Gerra and the marvelous Oyambre. You cannot leave, without trying some of the fish or seafood from the area, especially the marmita barquereña, a dish with bonito. To get here, take the motorway to Torrelavega, from here, in a westerly direction take the N-634.
