The Road: 

After descending from the alto, you emerge onto the main road (AS-350) in Piedratecha. Turn right and follow the road. About 600m later the camino bears to the left along a trail. Halfway down the hill to Vilaluz, there is an optional detour to the ruins of the Monasterio de Obona.

History: 

Monasterio de Obona

When King Alfonso IX declared that all pilgrims along the camino primitivo must visit Tineo he further mandated that they do the same with the Monastery at Obona. Pilgrims who did not visit it were indeed punished.

These days visiting...
