Tineo was built on the side of a steep valley and everywhere you go feels like a climb, but don’t let that deter you from getting out of the albergue (particularly the municipal) for a bit of exploring. The church is dedicated to San Pedro and adjacent to it is the Museo de Arte Sacro (Museum of Sacred Art).

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.

After descending from the alto you emerge onto the main road (AS-350) in Piedratecha which no longer has a bar.  Turn right and follow the road.  About 600m the camino bears to the left along a trail. 

Halfway down the hill to Vilaluz there is an option detour to the ruins of the Monasterio de Obona.

There are two bars in Campiello. Casa Ricardo on the left is a grocery, bar, restaurant, and albergue; the owners have been at it for three generations. Across the street Casa Herminia, proprietors of the other albergue, the other restaurant, and now the Hotel Rural. In the case of the latter, take the dire advice of the owner with a grain of salt; she is likely to warn you of the horrors of the albergue in Borres. It is not great but you will survive.

Notice: 

If you plan on continuing to Borres, stock up on food in Campiello.

The Road: 

Keep on the road through and out of town.

Located on the bank of the río Nisón, Pola de Allende has never been a town that was easy to get to; in fact the three hospitals for pilgrims were built high up on the mountain pass precisely because it was easier to go up than down. The Hotel and Restaurant ‘La Nueva Allandesa’ routinely receives praise from pilgrims for the kind service and healthy portions of Asturian home cooked meals.

The Road: 

The camino leaves Pola along the road and passes the village of El Mazo.
