Note that there is an albergue in Colombres but that in summer months it is frequently booked by student scout groups. The museum in town is excellent, if not to visit at least to walk the grounds.

History: 

The Indianos. The Museo de la Emigración in Colombres is an excellent collection in an incredible building. It captures the life of the Indianos, everyday Gallegos, Asturianos, Cantabrians, and Basques who because of their proximity to the sea were most able to emigrate from Spain to...

The camino now crosses the N-634 and the A-8 at the start of Peral, ignore all arrows pointing you down the N-634 as new construction has eliminated the old pilgrim pathway. Once across the highways turn left down a gravel track to parallel the A-8. You will be on the north side of the...

Same arrangement as Peral (stretched out along the N road), but with a small residential area which is where the albergue is located.

Notice: 

When the camino returns to the N-634 things get a bit confusing. There are two routes here, one that follows the road all the way to Buelna and beyond and an alternative which follows the coastline. The second route is the preferred option for its safety and scenery but it can be...

The Road: 

The turn off is to the left, remember that in Asturias the shell symbols are typically oriented such that the ‘hinge’ of the symbol represents Santiago.

The albergue is down this side road a short distance. Beyond it the camino descends and then turns off to the right, crosses uphill...

In the center of town is a Casa del Indiano left to the elements for what appears like the better half of a century, the only surviving element is, of course, the palm tree.

There are two routes between Pendueles and Llanes. The split between the two occurs shortly after you pass the Playa de Vidiago.

There is a beach just a short distance from the town center.

The Road: 

Póo straddles the AS-263 and the camino winds its way through town, crossing the main road to follow a coastal path known locally as the Senda Cicloturista to Celorio. Alternatively, it is possible to turn left to follow the AS-263 there.

The Monasterio de San Salvador is not open for visitors, but the church occasionally is.

Fiesta: 

Celorio is well known for its enthusiastic festivals. There are three spread out during the months of July and August.

The first is in honor of the Virgen del Carmen and begins on the first Sunday after the 16th of July at the Iglesia de San Salvador; it involves a procession with the Virgen to the beach. One week before this there is the hoguera (bonfire), wherein the neighboring villages compete to erect the largest eucalyptus tree (chopped and hauled back to town) in the church square. The third is the día del bollu to celebrate the patron of the city San Salvador on the first Sunday of August; it puts the food in feast.

The Road: 

The route through Celorio is well marked, though if you wander off of it you may get turned around easily in the web of streets of this small village. If in doubt head towards the beach, which the camino passes on its way out of town along a coastal road.

In recent years the politicians of Barro have begun undoing a decade of illegal development; it is a rare sight to see new buildings torn down. By the time you pass through, there will be more green space near the beach.

For a quiet moment consider following the road out of town...

Fiesta: 

San Roque is celebrated on the 15th of August.

The Road: 

Passing through Barro, there are a beach and bar to your right just off the main road.

Further ahead at the end of town the camino turns left to leave the road; just past this turn is a small detour to visit the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de los Dolores...

Due north of Naves is the Playa Gulpiyuri. A detour of 600m will be rewarded by the unique inland beach and quite possibly the worlds smallest sea.

Fiesta: 

Santa Ana, patron of the village, is celebrated on the 26th of July. San Antolín on the first two days of September, and San Vicente on the 11th of November alongside San Martín.

The Road: 

The camino follows a course along paved back roads and trails to Villahormes and beyond and doesn’t return to the AS-263 until it arrives at Nueva.
