Estaca de Bares

Reaching into the sea in order to divide the waters of the Atlantic from those of the Bay of Biscay, Estaca de Bares is the northernmost point of the entire Iberian Peninsula.

It is 400 kilometres further north than New York, but on this side warm Atlantic Gulf Stream passes by. So these waters do not freeze... but live in a constant agitation, because in Estaca de Bares, the sea is the child of the wind.

From this grey, green and imposing headland one commands a spectacular view. Estaca de Bares is one of the best birding spots in Europa and, in fact, has a permanent ornithological station. Thousands and thousands of birds pass through here every year – especially from September to December – so, for experts and amateurs from around the world, this is paradise.
