Ujo

2.25km
Altitude: 
246

Upon entering Ujo keep to your left if you wish to stop for a coffee or breakfast. To your right is an exercise path that you can also take but which doesn't pass any of Ujo's services.

The Church, the train station, and the breakfast bar are all in the square which is to your Left when you follow the road.

Both routes meet up at the end of town, and from here to Mieres, you will follow the exercise trail.

Santullano

3.98km
Altitude: 
231

Included in the guide for the sake of measuring distances, Santullano for pilgrims is nothing more than a train station.

Mieres

3.00km
Altitude: 
210
Another commercially oriented town, Mieres has all services. The albergue is located outside of town in La Peña.

Cross over the river and into town. If you are not interested in the town, and would rather breeze through it, continue straight after crossing the bridge, through the first major intersection. At the second one (with a large car park on your right) turn Left. You will pass an urban park and at the end of the park you have two options:

1. Carry on straight, turning left at the very end of the road and rejoining the camino.

2. Reconsider your intent to breeze through town, and turn right to visit the Iglesia de San Juan. If you choose this route, just turn left again when you get to the church. The road wraps around the city and meets option 1 very quickly.
