Tapia is included here as being on the official camino because there are historical reasons to do so, and modern arrows make it easy. It is a medium-sized town built around a modest fishing port with plenty of options for food.

The municipal albergue here wins the award for best-views-without-a-climb but it is not large so get here early.

The Iglesia de San Esteban was built in 1898, making it almost brand new (and neo-gothic).

The Road

From Tapia to Figueras there are a few walking options, including several coastal variations that are not officially the camino. If you follow close to the coast you won’t get lost and it is a beautiful walk. It cannot help but bring you to Figueras, which is the riverside border town of Asturias.

When you leave the city the Camino will lead you over different route then it’s here on the map, with a lot of asphalt roads. However, if you follow the signs to the GR E9 you will walk more or less the original route across country roads with beautiful views on the sea
