On the way into Luarca take a pause to admire five of its finest Casas de los Indianos; immediately on the camino are the Villas Excelsior, Cristina, Rosario, Argentina, and Barrera.

Being a river city the monuments, beaches and accommodations in Luarca are on both side; it is a crooked river and there are several crossing points. As usual, the best views are a hike away to the headland where you will find the faro (lighthouse) and the Capilla de la Atalaya.

Fiesta

The fiesta of Nuestra Señora del Rosario is celebrated on the 15th of August and San Timoteo is celebrated on the 22nd.

The Road

Leaving Luarca the camino climbs a bit, winding its way uphill though a residential expansion of the city. The road straightens out and levels off, and the camino follows it all the way to Otur. It crosses the N-634 along the way and when it passes through Otur (which is located on the N-634) it does so to the south of town.

We recommend the lavanderia City Sec Avenida de Galicia that cost the same and the guy did a really good job.

Don’t miss this cute little town. Book ahead at the albergue or it’s €30 for one person at Oria Hostal with shared bathroom and own room.

Although no self-service laundromat features on any map search in Luarca, I found one near La Pelu De Isa in Luarca. €5 for a wash and €3 for a dry.
