The San Juan de Gaztelugaxte hermitage in Vizcaya country, Spain.

Sometimes during a trip it can happen you discover a little unknown gem.

No tourist guides will take you there, you just discover it by chance, and you remain speechless, breathless … literally!

This is what happened us as we discovered the San Juan de Gaxtelugazte hermitage in Spain. It was spring 2011, and I can really say, this is one of the most spectacular places I have ever seen!

This is the San Juan de Gaztelugaxte hermitage, perched on a rock off the Basque coast, in the Vizcaya country, province of Bilbao, Spain.
