SAN VICENTE de la BARQUERA , SPAIN

Lovely place in Cantabria Spain.

----I was staying in Llanes and took a trip to San Vicente de la Barquera, a pleasant
fishing port, near the mountains of the Pico de Europa. -- I travelled by FEVE train. At
Llanes station The way to the West the station is Poo., and to the East seven stops
San Vicente. I had heard that the station at San Vicente was a long way from town.
I didn.t mind the over half an hour walk, but it was mostly at the side of a busy
road. So my return was by bus. -- The population of town is about 4,500. SAN VICENTE de la BARQUERA  SPAIN.   In  May.
