The Road

Between Nueva and Ribadesella the camino follows along a combination of quiet country roads and foot paths, passing through the villages of Piñeres and Cuerres. It returns to the AS-263 just before Ribadesella and follows it into the city.

City Map


Camino de Sant…

Don’t follow the alternative red route out of Nueva. There is absolutely no arrows pointing you where to go and had to be on my map the whole time. The views were incredible but like the previous comment we got to a section in the forest where we had to cross the river and couldn’t for the life of us see the path. It was fully grown over. Had to follow the river to meet the blue route. This added an extra 3hours to our journey. Now we still have 15km to go till our accomodation after already doing 12km not planned. Proceed with caution.

Camino de Sant…

Take care of the alternative red route north out of Nueve. While you will be treated to some stunning views, the route leads you into the forest along the river north of Cuerres. Half way down, the route urges you to cross the river unassisted, which is achievable with care. But discernible path from here disappears into impassible thicket and despite multiple attempts to navigate, I was forced to follow the river down to Cuerres to rejoin the blue route.

We stayed at Casa Indianas Don Tomas in Nueva. It was wonderful! It was about €55-60 for a double room. This is a house that has been in the same family for 3 generations—charming, clean and comfortable. Highly recommend it. You can find it through

Hotel/pension San Jorge:
BED BUGS, DO NOT STAY HERE. Room was dirty and the toilet leaked when flushed, sanitary nightmare. They refused to refund my money, so on top of being disgusting, they are also thieves.
I should also add, when I asked for my money back, the owners son threatened me physically, I can't emphasize enough, DO NOT GO HERE

Camino de Sant…

In October it was difficult to find a restaurant that served dinner before 9pm. “Mis aires” started serving at 8. Still a little late for pilgrims.
