Landmarks and Historic Buildings

Built in 1210, the Castillo del Rey (King's Castle) is one of the best examples of medieval defensive architecture in the region of Cantabria. Formerly owned by Alfonso I of Asturias, the castle was restored in the 1990s and now houses a permanent museum exhibition about San Vicente de la Barquera. Nearby you'll find the remains of some of the old town walls where the doors of Asturias and the Pilgrim have recently been rebuilt.
