El Portazgo is little more of an outpost than a village, in fact the neoclassic building on your left once you cross over the Rio Nalón was originally the toll station where you would pay for the pleasure of doing so.

DO NOT stay on the road here, but look to the left for a pair of mojons which direct you up a steep path. It is about 600m uphill until you emerge on a road with a few houses, turn left and continue on the road past a multipurpose sports field. Not far beyond the sports field the camino leaves the road along a narrow path gently to your right.
