Two bars, one at the start of town and another (El Tendejón) closer to the albergue. The latter bar keeps the keys to the albergue. They are closed on Wednesdays and the key is then available at the shop on the road closer to the albergue. The albergue here is located in the old school...

Los Indianos. In the late 19th century, during a period of great poverty, a great many Gallegos, Asturianos, Cantabrians, and Basques emigrated to Central and South America; their proximity to the sea enabled them to travel more readily. A great many left but only a few struck...

Beware guidebooks which erroneously place the Villapañada albergue in Grado, when it is in fact 3.5 km outside of town.

Fiesta: 

There is a traditional market held every Wednesday and Sunday.

Cornellana sits at the confluence of the río Narcea and the río Nonaya, which made for a suitably strategic place to build a monastery. Dedicated to San Salvador it remains the centerpiece of the town and is where the municipal albergue is housed.

History: 

A monastery has stood here for nearly 1,000 years. Operated in the earlier centuries as a Cluniac order. At that time it was one of the most important monasteries in Asturias and a key stopping point for pilgrims along the Camino Primitivo. It remains an active monastery, though of a much...

Fiesta: 

San Juan is celebrated on the 24th of June, and Nuestra Señora on the 15th of August.

The Road: 

The camino leaves town from the road behind the monastery. Arrows are weakly painted here. Simply follow the road to the left of the monastery, and turn right at the first junction to follow the property line behind the monastery and uphill.

Almost everything there is to see or do in Salas is centered around the Colegiata de Santa María la Mayor, a 16th century church whose patrons also built the nearby Palacio de Valdés Salas. The tower of the Palacio is now a museum for pre-Romanesque pieces.

History: 

Salas is the setting for the dramatic capture in the year 1586 of Bartholomeus Cassanu, an Italian pilgrim and habitual thief. Having successfully stolen from a Church in Zarautz (on the Camino del Norte) he tried to repeat the effort in Salas. Unfortunately for him he was caught with the loot...

Fiesta: 

The Romería del Viso is held on the 15th of August.

The Road: 

To exit town, carry on under the archway and up the road. There is a fair amount of climbing ahead of you. The climb meets the road at El Llanón, which is easy to miss as its infrastructure counts for little more than an abandoned factory along the road....

Sadly, El Pedregal no longer offers any services to passing pilgrims. The church in town, that of Justo y Pastor, dates from the 16th century. When the camino turns right to leave the road it passes two important camino landmarks. The first is El Humilladero, a stone cross that...

History: 

Tineo can trace its growth back to the early 13th century when King Alfonso IX mandated that all pilgrims pass through this place. It was at this time the largest pilgrim hospital on this route was built, the Mater Christi. The hospital is no longer, but remnants of its chapel and...

Notice: 

Buy supplies. Between Tineo and Campiello there are no services apart from a fountain at the edge of Tineo.

Fiesta: 

San Pedro, patron of the city, is celebrated on the 29th of June. A longer fiesta is held from the 12th to the 18th of August in celebration of San Roque.

The Road: 

The camino descends to the center of Tineo as far as the church. From there it turns right and begins the uphill climb out of town on the Calle la Fuente; the fuente is the fountain at the edge of town near a small picnic area.
