Gernika and San Juan de Gaztelugatxe

Today it rained a little but it has been a beautiful day! We have gone by bus to Gernika and there we have visited The Assembly house, the highest governing body or Bizkaia.

Then we have visited The Tree of Gernika, the best-known symbol of the Basque People, the "Old Trunk", located in the garden and surrounded by columns is the oldest remains that have reached our times.

After this historic visit we have gone to San Juan de Gaztelugatxe. Gaztelugatxe is an islet on the coast of Biscay belonging to the municipality of Bermeo. It is connected to the mainland by a man-made bridge. On top of the island stands a hermitage (named Gaztelugatxeko Doniene in Basque, San Juan de Gaztelugatxe in Spanish), dedicated to John the Baptist.
