Rumbo al Norte – Day 8: Castro Urdiales

You must visit the Cathedral by the sea, they said.

So we went.

And, after taking a pedestrian road by mistake and then abandoning the car in an illegal parking (it’s winter, there’s no one around….) we visited the Cathedral by the Sea.

Which is neither a Cathedral (it’s a church) nor by the sea (it’s the Ocean!).

It reminded me of Notre Dame, with its arching medieval structure and its dramatic (and difficult to photography) position against the setting sun.

The view was great, too.

What surprised us most, however, was the beauty of the stained glass windows inside the church.

Oh, and it was surrounded by seagulls who did not fear humans. The humans, by the end of it, slightly feared the seagulls XD

About Full Of Daisies

I am permanently in love. Things I like: purple, pasta, silk, autumn, the smell of mould, candles, cachi, having friends, water, new things, rice, eggs (all eggs!), fresh grass, olive trees, shiny things, glitter, hanging objects, windcatchers, wind, couscous, wasabi, carnivores, presents, snow, leaves, orchids, feathers, cappelletti, meat, fruit (all fruit), more del gelso (Morus alba L.), pigs, candles, christmas, polenta fritta!, separating egg whites from yokes in my hands, cartoons, dragons, the ocean, nudibranchi, cows, mercury (the metal), cosmos (the flowers), thunderstorms, Mika, turtles, acquariums, green and blue (mixed), siccamores, spring, snails, 24, porc with a sweet sauce (apple, cranberry, tomatoes jam), looking at a swimming pool upsidedown and underwater, english accent, open-minded people, driving, blue skies, checkered tablecloths, butterflies, books and cartoons in rhyme, painting eggs, the star-shadows that football players have, silver, laughing, Vivaldi, bells and chimes, white and purple, creating. Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
