From here you can see the Cantabrian sea, the town and the beach nearby. The green lawns give it all a beautiful contrast.

An great view along the coastline and back over the city. Some interesting art installations. Read the notice boards about the history. The day we went was windy but I still enjoyed the fresh air.

It's ok and worth a walk round if you have time, but don't make trip just for the headland. The area is a bit run down and could do with more sprucing up by the local council
