San Vicente de la Barquera is a town located in the coastal region of West Cantabria. It is very attached to the sea, fishing and traditions. It a really nice place that will enchant you, surrounded by the sea and the mountains at the same time. Great beaches and estuaries, as well as heritage buildings to visit and good restaurant to try the best fresh fish, makes this town a beautiful place to have a nice day and to approach to coastal life and traditions.

From Potes it will takes us about 45 minutes by car to get to San Vicente de la Barquera, crossing the amazing gorge called “La Hermida”. Once there, we will be able to visit the Castillo del Rey, the “Puerta Vieja de San Vicente” or sea port where dock the fishing boats.
