We will leave at 9:00 towards Santoña where Buciero Mountain is. This is a rocky massif that juts into the sea. On our way to Santoña by minivan, we will go through the Natural Park of the marshes of Santoña, Victoria, and Joyel. One of the spots with a greater biological diversity of Spain and a gift for the view. We will also cross the promenade of Santoña, to leave the vehicle and start our ascent to Buciero Mountain. This mountain is a spectacular place because of its ecosystem, headlights, cliffs and patrimonial items of high value. In truth, it is one of the most beautiful places of the Cantabrian coast and also the refuge of many of the birds that pass through the marshes and use it as a place of rearing. The Buciero Mountain has three summits (all with a height of more than 300 m), from any of them we will be able to contemplate the most exceptional panoramic views over the city of Santoña, the beach of Berria and the estuary of the River Asón. 

The path is a little demanding as to reach the lighthouse of the Horse we will have to climb half an hour by a path of jagged rocks and then go down and latter up some stairs of 760 steps!! During the excursion, we will make several stops to enjoy the place. Our longer stop will be in the lighthouse of the Horse where we will eat something we have brought (water and food not included) and thus make forces to the rise back up the stairs. We will then continue toward the Lighthouse of the Fisherman. Up from this point, we will be able to see the beach of Berria, the marshes and the criminal court of El Dueso. "

This walking route will take us between 3.30 and 4 hours.
