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 Americas (central and south) during a period of great poverty in the late 19th century. A great many left but only a few struck it rich, and when they returned they turned their fortunes to building large manors and to securing titles. Many of the houses still remain and those in Asturias are the finest examples. They are sometimes colonial in style, and always eclectic with palm trees as a tribute to their tropical lives.

The Indianos also repaid their fortune by financing public works projects, and in Colombres the primary benefactors were responsible for bringing the village to a level or modernization seen only in the Asturian capital.

Camino de Sant… (not verified)

Only about 1.2 kms out of town on the main road but super great value - we got a double room for 40 euro. There is a wonderful restaurant about 400 metres away - all in all very relaxed and spotlessly clean

On the Camino, across from the Farmacia. Restaurant just around the corner had menu del dia for 10 euro. Contactless checkin. Clean and modern.

Nice quiet place with friendly staff. Clean and tidy. Washer and dryer were welcome!

If at all possible use Albergue El Cantu as a last resort. There are many poor reports and they are all relevant!

Hostel is often booked up for kids/school trips, so worth checking in advance if you intend to stay here.
