It really is so very easy to decry places like this simply because they are full of tourists, and I wonder if the people who read and write these reviews sometimes forget that they are also tourists, and certainly viewed as such when they visit villages like this. Perhaps we should accept that the reason this village is such a tourist magnetic is because it is very very beautiful. So, for people reading reviews in advance of a visit, the choice is simple: if you are going to moan about it - save yourself the bother and don't come. Alternatively, visit the village and accept it for what it is - a very popular and stunningly beautiful village. Simples!

It runs right through the middle of the town, there are shops, artisanal workshops restaurants and a museum. Keep heading up this street and you hit the Colegiata de Santa Juliana. This street is packed full of tourists but if you bear with the crowds it really is pretty and does have that straight out of a movie feel.

Why bother? Because it IS a pretty village. OK, there are many other pretty villages in the world, perhaps. But if you're in Cantabria, it is definitely worth a visit. You don't like the "tourists". Stay here for a few days, get to know the people. Oh, and I hope you speak their language. If not, just be another "tourist", be respectful, enjoy the views, the buildings, the life... Just remember that it is free, that you don't have to pay for this view, but if you're not rushing around, have a coffee or a beer and watch the rest of the world.

It may be the "most beautiful village in Spain" but it is stuffed full of tourists and shops that want to separate them from their money. Vilagges like this are two a penny in France, so why bother?
