Road Trip to San Sebastian - Part 1

The day after Oviedo we took of for two nights in San Sebastian, Spain, a three hour drive east of Ribadesella. 
Sites from the road:
Suspension bridge with supports in the middle of the bridge.  Never seen such a thing before.

Cool tunnel.

Building on a pedestal.
We stopped in Castro-Urdiales, in the Principado (province) de Cantabria, for lunch, per the suggestion of Maria-Adele.  What an incredibly sweet and beautiful town!
Restaurant along the street where we ate.  There was also a restaurant named Laredo.

Looking cool in Castro Urdiales

This place looks like a movie set.  Medieval castle, 19th century lighthouse and harbor.

Castle with Iglesia de Santa María de la Asunción, from the 13th century.

Not all of Castro Urdiales was picturesque...
