Check out the Dragonstone Stairs of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe in Spain. After making the trek to the church, ring the bell three times and make a wish. Tradition says that your wishes will come true and you will be free of evil spirits. The stairs were also famously featured in Game of Thrones. There are a lot of stairs up to the church, you may be winded by the time you make it to the top.

Beautiful scenery. In August, somewhat of a highway though, shared with about 1000 people... and as a hike not very exciting: down and up, and back in 1h.

Wonderful place! the seaside is beautiful, it was really worth going to the top and ring the bell 3 times for good fortune;) BUT, it's not jokes, bring good shoes with good support, the Urizzata trail is made of big stone and is steep, it is easy to get lost. Happy hike everyone!

This was one of my favorite hikes. Since I was staying in Bilbao I took the bus as close to this hike as possible (San Pelaio) which was €2.55 each way and then walked side of the road in the beautiful rural scenery there for round 45 minutes to and from the hike.
