Gaztelugatxe Island, Spain

Gaztelugatxe is a tiny island in the Basque part of Spain, some say it is the most impressive site in Basque country.
On the highest point of the island there is a beautiful Hermitage called San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, The structure is believed to have been built sometime in the 9th or 10th century!  Gaztelugatxe island is connected to land by a man-made bridge, which is very narrow and thus accessible only by foot. There are quite a lot of stairs, all and all the hike is around 4 km long (round-trip) and is partly steep. But it is well worth the effort!
Some scenes from Game of Thrones (season 7) were shot on and around the Island.
