Gaztelugatxe, Spain

GOT fans, recognize this site? Dragonstone Castle, which was obviously done in CGI but the pathway and island are real.

This islet is located on the northern coast of Spain in Basque country and was a beautiful place to spend a little time. There is parking nearby, but it is a fair amount of walking to get to the island and back. 

This made man bridge takes you over the water to the ladder of steps leading you to the medieval church at the apex. 

The 360 degree views of the rugged coastline are stunning. 

At the church we were rewarded with more beautiful views and the sounds of waves crashing on the shore. Great walk for a four legged friend, Bogi definitely enjoyed it!

This coastal area is pretty isolated. There is not much in the way of restaurants so pack a lunch because they have several benches spaced out along the path overlooking the Bay of Biscay that are perfect for a picnic. Gaztelugatxe is definitely worth a stop when in the area.
