San Vicente del Monte

Between Cabezón de la Sal and San Vicente de la Barquera - off the tourist track yet just 16km from the coast at Comillas - is a beautiful green valley with rolling farmland sweeping steeply up to a long mountain ridge.

San Vicente del Monte itself sits like a cap on top of its steep hill looking down on the valley farms, the mountains ranged behind. A lovely old village, with a bar (open in the summer months only), it’s a rural community still living and working within the traditions of many years, with animals still very much part of village life.

The little hamlet of La Herreria, 4km away at the bottom of the valley, has a bar/restaurant with good home cooking and Treceño, a little further on, has several restaurants and bars as well as a small supermarket, pharmacy and other shops.

It is a very peaceful part of the world; farmers and their animals, the bread van and the occasional mobile shop are all the traffic you’ll see.

Local Activities

  • Walking in and around the village. You can walk up to the mountain ridge and there are signposts to " La Ruta de Los Camberos" (Roman walkway, partly excavated) and beyond.
