On the way into town you cannot help but notice the number of large Casas del Indiano. Most are well preserved, much like the old town center. Together they are the reason that tourism in Llanes remains so popular.

To the south are the Cantabrian mountains and the limestone caves which give culture to Cabrales, Spain’s finest blue cheese.

Take the time to wander among the throngs of tourists; many of who will also be getting turned around in the web of narrow streets trying to visit the Basílica Menor de Santa María de la Asunción de Llanes and the Capilla de Santa Ana.

The Road

The camino enters Llanes from the south along the Avenida de la Concepción and continues along it all the way to the Río Carrocedo. At the river, the streets are mostly for pedestrians only and the camino does not deviate from the road, it follows along through several name changes and the old town and passes the train station on the way out of town. Shortly after it leaves the road and turns left to cross the railway and continue along a path to Póo.

Camino de Sant… (not verified)

The coastal route from Andria is lovely but will bring you in next to the golf course where you will be routed along a gravel track which climbs and meanders along the ridge for a long way before bringing you down towards Llanes past the Eremita del Cristo de Camino. It’s pretty but it adds a good 45 mins to your walk and the last downhill is steep and slippy. It also doesn’t have much shade until the end. If it’s hot the road might be a better option. BlueK

Camino de Sant… (not verified)

Stayed there last night. They charge a lot, but they do not care about pilgrims. The most shocking thing for me was that pilgrims are not allowed to wake up, use the shower and have tea before 7 am. Although many of the pilgrims prefer to get on the Camino by 6 am. I can understand the rule about washing and drying clothes, but the timing rule is so easy to change.

Stayed at Pension Guia right on the main square for 30 Euros. Clean and very nice
