Castro, the ancient fishing village known to the Romans as Flaviobriga, is a small town on the Cantabrian coast not far from the border with the Spanish Basqueland. It's the perfect place for a lively weekend getaway.
Make sure to pay attention when parking as it can become complicated. I’d suggest parking along the breakwater on the waterfront since it’s free.
This is a town with a fishing port and a strong industry based around the sea. It's also a place where you can enjoy some fabulous seafood, tasty "pinchos" in the bars (the squid croquettes at Cierbanata in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento are exquisite!), or locally canned goods (especially the anchovies, just delicious!).
