Castro Urdiales is a seaport of northern Spain, in the autonomous
community of Cantabria. Castro Urdiales is a modern town, although its
castle and the Gothic-style parish church of Santa María de la
Asunción, date from the Middle Ages. Its chief industries are tourism,
fishing, and the preservation of fish, especially sardines and
anchovies, in oil. Tourism has greatly increased in Castro Urdiales in
the last decades. Although the number of people registered in the town
is around 32,000, the summer population can double or even triple this
figure.The town is popular because of its beaches and scenic harbor.
