A mystical place, Top in Basque Country!
Oct 2020 • Friends
Ermita de San Juan de Gaztelugatxe is a little church located on a rock in the sea, close to the coast, in Bizkaia Region, in Basque Country. Really, it is a mystical place, where some scenes of Game of Thrones were filmed. The views of the place are wonderful and you can go here from stone stairs to the top of the rock. In fact, it was a great little excursion. I recommend you go before 9a.m. and not in weekend, because it is empty of people. Also the surroundings are very nice: the sea, the rocks, the coast and mountains. Top in our travel in Basque Country.

Strenuous hike back to the parking lot
Sep 2019
Gaztelugatxe is an interesting place to visit even if you don't know Dragonstone from limestone; we didn't. Very picturesque. Nice views from the Ermita.
Be aware that the hike to and from the Ermita is not a walk in the park. The hike down to the ocean is steep, but the trail is in good shape. Then there are about 250 stairs to the Ermita. The killer is the segment from the ocean back up to the parking area. One is already tired from the previous segments. So, unless you are in good shape and are used to steep hikes, just take it easy going back up. It gets the heart pumping!

Go by bus from Bilbao. Cost is €2.55 one way. 45 minutes. Buses leave hourly during the week and 2 hourly on Sundays and public holidays. Tourist Offices will provide service schedules.

About 2.8km to walk from the bus stop. It's hilly so expect some steep sections.

From the bar/cafe it's another 800m to reach the church. You can also ring the church bell.

Weekends are busy. Best to catch the 8am bus and get there early to beat the crowds.

It's worth the effort.

Spectacular

This was an amazing day trip from Getxo. At the top was a bar with a huge spread of pintxos. I suggest getting a small bite before making the journey down. Also grab a small bottle of water to take with you. You are going to sweat so be prepared with a change of clothes for the car. I suggest good hiking boots or tennis shoes. You will be walking for a couple of miles on cobblestones on a very steep path. My husband and I are in good cardiovascular shape and would say the way down was more about balance and the way back was an amazing cardio workout-we were drenched! This is an exhilarating trip! Make sure to ring the bell at the top to tell the world you were there!

Great views and good exercise. Don’t attempt this unless you are prepared for a short walk up and down some steep slopes and steps. Not too bad though. Worth the effort for the views, especially for Game of Thrones fans. Car parking near the cafe/restaurant is good.

Easy going down! But best to be fit to get back up!
Sep 2018 • Couples
This is a very deceptive walk. It's downhill there, except for the last 250 steps, and then uphill all the way back. Take water if a hot day! Actually, avoid this walk if unfit and it is a hot day! Fantastic experience.
