Gaztelugatxe, a small, rocky island on Spain's northern coast is said to resemble a castle, which could explain why it's suffered numerous attacks over the centuries. Connected to the mainland by a causeway, the island's main highlight is a chapel built in the 11th century in honor of St. John.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • More than 82,000 votes were cast to pick new natural wonders in Spain
  • Top destinations include biosphere reserves and a cluster of lakes
  • Campaign's final stage includes hiring a team of "explorers" to go on two-week trip

(CNN) -- Spain didn't get a mention in 2011's hotly debated "New 7 Wonders of Nature" roundup.

So it just went ahead and cooked up its own list.

The 7 Natural Wonders of Spain were announced in early June after a round of votes on the campaign's official website.

More than 82,000 votes were cast to select the top seven out of 20 Spanish destinations.

It's unclear an ancient gold mine counts as a "natural wonders" but the seven finalists make a stunningly scenic alternative itinerary to standard travel lists of heritage sites.

"Probably one of the least-known destinations for international tourists is Gaztelugatxe," campaign representative Sonia Rodriguez told CNN.

"In the case of Spanish tourists, the least known destinations are Las Medulas or the Lagunas de Ruidera Natural Park."

In the final stage of the campaign, organized by travel insurance company Allianz Global Assistance, a team of "explorers" will be picked to officially inaugurate a new tourist route around the sites.

All travel expenses and a "salary" of €1,500 ($2,045) will be provided for each explorer to cover a two-week tour of all seven.

The website will be accepting applications from Spanish speakers until June 30.

The list of natural wonders includes: Gaztelugatxe, a small rocky island; Somiedo Natural Park, a mountain wildlife haven; Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park, a volcanic landscape in southern Andalusia; Las Medulas, an ancient gold mine; Lagunas de Ruidera Natural Park, a landscape of lakes; Fuente De, a gorge in the Picos de Europa mountains and As Catedrais beach, a stunning spot on Spain's northern coast.

Gaztelugatxe,在西班牙北部海岸的一個小岩石島,據說像一座城堡,這可以解釋為什麼它在過去幾個世紀遭受了許多的攻擊。 連接到大陸通過一條堤道,島上的主要亮點是建於11世紀的榮譽聖約翰教堂。Gaztelugatxe,在西班牙北部海岸的一個小岩石島,據說像一座城堡,這可以解釋為什麼它在過去幾個世紀遭受了許多的攻擊。連接到大陸通過一條堤道,島上的主要亮點是建於11世紀的榮譽聖約翰教堂。
