Ladder Gastelugache, Spain

From series “Furious Footways Around the World That Make You Dizzy”
Not far from the coast of the Gulf of Biscay is a tiny island of San Juan de Gastelugache, which is very popular with nature lovers and amateurs of quiet rest. One of the main attractions of the islet is the Gastelugache staircase, it is laid over a complex hilly terrain and leads to the hermit's hut, built on the edge of a steep cliff. To achieve the only "residential" building on the island, its guests need to overcome 237 steps.

Ladder Gastelugache, Spain The most terrible thing is to move up the stairs at a time when the sea is worried. In some places the staircase passes through very narrow ridges. This staircase built of stone is very beautiful, it will be a great place to admire the surrounding landscapes and a place for a memorable photo session. Travellers will be able to visit a church located on the island, in which an interesting collection of exhibits is kept today. For hundreds of years, sailors, who managed to escape from storm, brought their gifts to the church. Today, they form the basis of the exposition presented in the museum.

Those who prefer extreme entertainment will have an opportunity to stroll along the stone bridge that connects the island to the mainland. This walk promises to be no less impressive than a hike through the ancient staircase to the hermit's hut. Most tourists visit Gastelugache islet in summer, and experienced travellers recommend to go on an excursion in the fall or spring, when the surrounding landscapes are particularly spectacular.
