Photographer's Note

The road to access the monastery of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, on the Cantabria coast.

From Wikipedia:
"It's a small rocky island close to the coast, ccessible thanks to a bridge. On its summit there is a small church; to reach the church you have to climb 229 stairs. In the church there are various "ex-voto" by seamen who escaped shipwrecks.
Followingthe tradition, when you reach the church you have to touch the bell three times and express a wish.
From the top of the island there is a beautiful view on the coastline and the nearby small islands"

The picture was taken with a film camera; the slide was scanned.
