Cornites pilgrimage.

Cornites pilgrimage.

The Serantes, recognized for its peculiar conical configuration from any point of the estuary, bare of vegetation, due to the industrialization of Greater Bilbao, maintains memories of more glorious times, when forts, towers, batteries were built on its top and slopes , symbol of the defensive power of this summit. We will visit the tower on the summit, an irregular pentagon that, despite the ruins, maintains the greatness that it must have had at the time. In other words, a full-fledged fort, built to defend the port and, by extension, the Abra del Nervión. Despite the ruins, the Serantes fort retains that dignity of the military constructions of the times when wars were only for the military and the civilian population remained on the sidelines. Let yourself be enveloped by its smell, its tradition, its people and those unforgettable views of the Cantabrian coast and the Abra bay. Discover incredible places.
