Don’t miss a visit to the slightly off the camino Iglesia de San Mamés de Cuerres; it served as a pilgrim hostal in the 16th and 17th centuries and preserves a pretty great stone vault. In front is the Fuente de Peregrinos from the 16th century too.

Festività: 

San Antón is celebrated on the 17th of January.

Like most towns divided by a river, it is sometimes difficult to work up the strength to go exploring “the other side.” Ribadesella is that way, and if you stay on the east side of the river you will miss out on the wonderful Playa de Santa Marina.

On the other hand if you stay in the albergue you will be right on top of it but miss out on the old town with its many old manor homes, the Iglesia de Santa María Magdalena (which also served as a pilgrim hospital) and the Capilla Santa Ana, as well as a nice stroll to the top of Mount Corberu...

Storia: 

When the Romans settled here they divided the population to form a town on each bank. When Alfonso X (the wise) came around in the 13th century he united them. As coastal towns go it was one of great natural wealth. Historically the townspeople have enjoyed the prosperity that comes from the...

Festività: 

San Antón is celebrated on the 17th of January, San Juan on the 24th of June, La Virgen de la Guia in July, and Santa Marina on the 25th of August.

Il cammino: 

The city of Ribadesella is bisected by the Río Sella, on the east back of which is the old town and the west bank its expansion along the beachfront. The camino crosses the river along the road and turns right once across. The arrows point the way along the beach through town...

Vega is something of a hidden gem on the camino, a beach-side village with a rustic mountain vibe. A beach, some beach bars, a small shop and the Ermita de la Magdalena are all there is to see and do but they are just enough.

Il cammino: 

The camino descends through Vega de Ribadesella all the way to the beach, where it then climbs back up to Berbes, passing along the way a few hamlets without any services.

La Espasa is essentially just a beach with a couple of restaurants along the promenade, as well as a public restroom and a kids park (in case you were looking for a flying fox).

Attenzione: 

The town of La Isla sits to the north of the N-632, and the camino does not technically pass through town. From the albergue in La Isla it is possible to get to Colunga via a coastal path that takes you through Güerres. Inquire at the albergue for more...

Il cammino: 

The camino follows the beach here, at the far end of which is a bar and public restroom. Beyond that the camino crosses a small river and follows along the N-632.

At this point the camino follows along the N-632, leaving it on several occasions for safety but always returning to it.

Il cammino: 

At the start of La Isla, which itself sits at the edge of the camino, the camino turns left off the N-632 to follow a quiet road through a number of small hamlets. It rejoins the N-632 at the entrance to Colunga.

The Capilla de Santa Ana is all that remains of the pilgrim hospital that once stood here. The old road through town, now known as the Calle del Doctor Grande Covián was once the Calle Real. It has always been the Camino de Santiago through town.

Festività: 

The Fiestas de Nuestra Señora de Loreto is held on the second Sunday in July.

Il cammino: 

At the far end of Colunga turns left to follow the AS-258, and then quickly thereafter it turns right at a fork to follow the CL-1. It follows this paved country road all the way to Pernús, passing under A-8 at the half way point. It nears several small hamlets.

The 10th century Iglesia de San Salvador is one of the most significant examples of Pre-Romanesque architecture in Asturias. If it is locked up, and it most certainly will be, don’t just give up. A few of the locals have keys and if you ask around or get somebody’s attention enough to make the unlock gesture, it might be possible to wrangle a visit.

Il cammino: 

In Priesca, after visiting the church, the camino leaves the CL-1 briefly along a path to the right. It rejoins the road for a short distance not far ahead, but then leaves it for the last time along a trail to the left. This trail begins a road shortly after passing under the A-8 at...

The town has been called Villaviciosa, an allusion to the fertility of the land, since the 14th century. It occupies a low valley south of the estuary and the rich land here supports a cattle and dairy industry, but perhaps more importantly it grows very good apples for the production of the sidra (the famous hard cider of Asturias). If you spot a sidrería stop in for a glass but mind the curious customs of drinking it: it is poured from a great height, bottle held high and glass held low, and usually behind the back, to get some air into the small amount which...

Festività: 

Santumedero de Sietes is celebrated on the 3rd of March. San Juan on the 24th of June, and Santiago on the 25th of July.

Il cammino: 

Pay close attention to the arrows through town. The camino follows a route which takes you past most of the more notable monuments, including the Ayuntamiento building, the monument to Carlos I, and the Iglesia de Santa María de la Oliva. At the church it turns left to follow the AS-255...
