There are a surprising number of architectural heritage sites in Cóbreces, and if you spend the night here you are encouraged to walk the town to take them all in.

They are more or less all adjacent to the camino and include, from east to west: the Colegio de San José (...

Notice: 

There is an alternate route which may cause some confusion in Cóbreces. It turns left at the Iglesia de San Pedro and follows a more southerly path to La Iglesia.

Fiesta: 

July: Santa Ana on the 26th.

August: San Pedrucu on the 1st and San Roque on the 16th. On the last Saturday of August there is a pilgrimage to the Ermita de Virgen de la Peña, a journey of 18km meant to rid the penitent of all epidemics.

The Road: 

The camino follows the CA-353 all the way through town. It passes all of the albergues as well as the abbey. When it reaches the first main intersection (after the abbey) it turns left and then right again, following the road to the nearby beach. From the beach it climbs up to a small hamlet....

Fans of Gaudi in particular and architecture in general will be thrilled to find so much to do in Comillas. The camino cuts a short path through town but if you stay the night here do yourself the favor of making a full loop around it so that you can get to the beaches, the harbor, and...

History: 

Agriculture and fishing have long been the pillars of the economy for Comillas, and of the latter it produced some of the finest (and infamous) Whalers of its time. Between the 17th and 18th centuries the free whale was hunted until there were none left to catch, at which point the men...

Notice: 

The camino has recently changed and now follows the road north. The new route bypasses El Tejo and La Revilla and instead continues along a pedestrian path adjacent to the road. It continues to Oaymbre beach (bar) and then onward to San Vicente de la Barquera...

Fiesta: 

Comillas keeps a comprehensive festival calendar, starting with the Cabalgata de Reyes Magos for winter pilgrims passing through on the 5th of January. Later in the year it celebrates Carnaval for the three weeks leading up to Semana Santa (Holy Week). Bonfires on the beach for San Juan on the 23rd of June. Later the local fiesta celebrates San Pedro on the 28th and 29th. San Cristóbal, patron of Comillas, is celebrated on the 10th of July; and less than a week later Santo Cristo del Amparo is celebrated on the 16th. And lastly, on the final weekend of August, the Día del Indiano celebrates the intrepid explorers who set out from Comillas in the mid 19th century to find their fortune in the Americas and the Philippines.

The Road: 

The camino passes through the center of the old town, and does not go near any of the beaches in Comillas; however it is worthwhile to make the detour to visit as the views are exceptional.

After passing through the old town the camino emerges onto the Calle del Marqués de...

San Vicente de la Barquera is part of the Camino Lebaniego, you will see some new signs with a stylized red cross. The town itself is supported by seaside tourism and makes for a nice stopping place. It has a charming old quarter which has hosted pilgrims for centuries...

Fiesta: 

San Vicente Mártir is celebrated on the 22nd of January with a farming fair. El Carmen is celebrated on the 16th of July, it is the place to be if sardines are your thing.

The biggest celebration, that of La Folía, is held the second Sunday following Easter Sunday.

The Road: 

After crossing the estuary into San Vicente, the camino proceeds directly through the roundabout at the end of the bridge, and in so doing it doesn’t really go into town. To get to any of the services and transportation, turn right at the roundabout and then retrace your steps to leave...

The city has two centers which are separated by a smattering of urban development. The only buildings in town of any historical merit are the Iglesia de El Salvador and the Palacio de Peredo.

History: 

Viveda was founded by King Alfonso I of Asturias to be a stop along the old Roman road and the Camino de Santiago. The Iglesia de El Salvador began construction as early as 878, making it almost a full century older than the one in Santillana del Mar.

The Road: 

Once over the bridge into Viveda keep to the right at the first roundabout, heading uphill. A short distance later it turns left onto the CA-340 in the direction of Camplengo. This new route is well marked and almost entirely along the road, leading you directly to the ...
