Photographer's Note

Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer you a beautiful minimalist composition with the daily life scene of the lone fisherman on the Brazo Mayor river at half tide, in San Vicente de la Barquera. I hope you like it, then some letters about the villa.

San Vicente de la Barquera is a municipality in the western coastal region of Cantabria (Spain). It borders the Cantabrian Sea and the municipalities of Vald嫮iga, Herrer燰s and Val de San Vicente. Its capital, the town of San Vicente de la Barquera, is closely linked to the sea, as all its traditions, customs and popular festivals demonstrate. Tourism is its main activity due to the great natural beauty and heritage that the area has. 80% of the municipal area belongs to the Oyambre Natural Park and enjoys a special protection regulated by the autonomous community of Cantabria as a result of its extraordinary landscape and ecological value.

There is evidence of human settlement since prehistory. In particular, vestiges of the Bronze Age have remained, such as the megalithic site of El Barcenal. It is believed that the Cantabrian orgenomescos inhabited here. St. Vincent has been identified with the Portus Vereasueca of the Romans.

In the High Middle Ages, this territory was repopulated by Alfonso I in the middle of the 8th century. The castle then rose, and around it the town grew. The period of economic boom of San Vicente is developed from 1210. On April 3 of that same year Alfonso VIII of Castile granted San Vicente de la Barquera privilege of villazgo, granting him the same jurisdiction as San Sebastian. last of the 亭our Villas of the Coast -Castro Urdiales (1163), Santander (1187), Laredo (1200) and San Vicente de la Barquera itself- to which Alfonso VIII granted jurisdiction, configuring itself as a royal estate. boom was made possible through maritime trade and fishing rights. From 1330 date the first rules of the brotherhood of sailors. However, in the middle of the fifteenth century it went into decline, due to a series of fires and pests. In the sixteenth century, the future king Carlos I of Spain and V of Germany visited the town when he was on his way to the plateau, to be named monarch. On the occasion of his visit a bullfight was prepared. There he became ill and had to spend the night in the convent of San Luis.

San Vicente de la Barquera was part of the Corregimiento of the Four Villas of the Coast of the Sea and capital of the brotherhood of the Four Villas de la Mar. He participated in the San Miguel Bridge Meetings, intervening in the formation of the Ordinances of the Province of Cantabria (1779).
It was constituted as a constitutional council in 1822. At first, it was part of the judicial district of Comillas. As of 1835 it had its own judicial party, but it did not cover the Li嶵ana area, which does occur today.

In April 1973 it was announced that Electra de Viesgo was going to build the Santill嫕 nuclear power plant, with four units and a power of four million kilowatts, whose initial cost was estimated at 80,000 million pesetas. The company acquired 71.6 hectares of land, the equivalent of 71 football fields, in a coastal strip that covers the area of ​​the municipalities of San Vicente de la Barquera and Val de San Vicente, next to the inlet of the beach of La Fuente ; On the cliffs of Santill嫕-Boria, a ditch was built to carry out preliminary surveys for the construction of the nuclear power plant in this area. It was scheduled to begin exporting power in 1982, with an output of 970 megawatts. Finally, due to political and social opposition, both from Cantabria and from Asturias, the electric company abandoned the project provisionally.
