CDN-Day 10: Portugalete to Castro Urdiales-25.5km

Day 10: Portugalete to Castro Urdiales, today you leave the Urban jungle behind. Outside Portugalete, you begin walking on a bike path for around 10km. Where the bike path ends you cross La Arena beach to a pedestrian bridge over the River Bardadun. The much-loved Chapel of Nuestra Señora de Socorro de Pobeña is on the other side. It is here the local sailors would gather and decide whether to set sail or not, but not before asking for the protection of the Virgin for their fishing boats or ships.

Around 1km later you leave the Basque Country and enter the Autonomous Community of Cantabria.

Buen Camino!
