San Vicente de la Barquera. Ruins and San Vicente de la Barquera. Castle are from summer 1910, when Regoyos was living in Ontaneda, which he used as a base for a number of excursions around the province of Cantabria. [...] In the other painting, a view of the castle in late afternoon, light and shade create a relief effect and Regoyos masterfully reproduces the texture of the historic old building and the plant-life on the hill. Above is a sky full of white, blue and mauve clouds, in telling contrast to the greens and ochres of the hill, making this a highly colourful landscape. [Juan San Nicolás, 2008]
