The “Road of the Coast” within Bizkaia comprises five stages. It starts in Berriatua and ends in the town of El Hague. Its passage through Barakaldo begins with the arrival in the Kastrexana Quarter, where we cross the Devil’s Bridge, built in the sixteenth century.
Legend has it that a young woman sold her soul to the devil in exchange for a bridge that allowed her to cross to the other side of the Cadagua, where her beloved lived.
As the bridge was almost complete, the young woman repented and prayed to Our Lady; and when only one stone was missing to put on, the rooster sang after the end of the night.
Therefore, the young woman saved her soul because the bridge was not considered finished, but at the same time, she was able to cross the bridge to see her beloved. Today you can still see that stone is missing on the bridge.
