Description

Discover the charms of one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Basque Country, which is also full of superstitions, mysticism, stories of pirates, heroes …

According to the legend, San Juan unshiped in the port of Bermeo, and taking only three steps he arrived at the hermitage leaving engraved the footprints on the road. We invite you to discover them and count the stairs to reach the chapel and touch, as tradition dictates, the bell three times, to make a wish or scare off evil spirits, even women with fertility problems come to the place to ask for help .

Then we will travel to Gernika, place of unfortunate memory for the bombing that occurred on April 26, 1937, during the Spanish Civil War, which served as an inspiration to Pablo Picasso to create one of the best-known paintings of contemporary art: The “Gernika” . But this town in Bizkaia is much more. It is also a symbol of the liberties of the Biscayans (extended to all Basques) where the lords of Bizkaia swore respect for their privileges under the shade of the oak known as the “Gernika Tree” where all the presidents (Lehendakaris) symbolically swear by the safeguards the historical privileges of the Basques.
