  • Duration: 6h
  • Difficulty: Moderate

Breakfast and start of the first stage of our Camino de Santiago from Gijón.

This stage goes through industrial areas, with quite a bit of asphalt. The only difficulty of the stage will be the ascent to Monte Areo (Technological and Industrial Park).

The stage passes through the towns of Pavierno-Santa Eulalia (Carreño)–Zancornio–Tabaza–Trasona, before arriving in Avilés.

Highlights of the stage include the Church of Santa Eulalia in Carreño and the Old Town of Avilés.

Arrival in Avilés. Accommodation.

  • Duration: 6h 30m
  • Difficulty: Moderate

Breakfast and start of the stage.

This stage passes through sections with quite a bit of asphalt and constant slopes, both uphill and downhill. Areas of eucalyptus forests and the crossing of the Nalón River will greet us along the route.

The cultural highlight of the stage is the Castle of San Martin in Soto del Barco, and the Palacio de Valdecarzana and Vallehermoso in Muros de Nalon.

In El Pitu, we highlight the Selgas Palace and the Church of Jesus the Nazarene.

A must-visit is Cudillero, located 1.5 km away, considered one of the most beautiful villages in Spain.

Arrival in El Pitu. Accommodation.

  • Duration: 2h 30m
  • Difficulty: Low

Breakfast and start of the stage.

Short stage. Predominantly rural area with frequent slopes, walking in areas very close to the N-632 and the A-8.

In Soto de Luiña, the most significant monument is the Church of Santa María.

Arrival in Soto de Luiña. Accommodation.

  • Duration: 5h 30m
  • Difficulty: Moderate

Breakfast and start of the stage.

On this stage, we leave behind the main population centers and walk very close to the N-632, along the Camino Real de las Ballotas, very close to the coast, which makes it a stage of great beauty due to its proximity to the sea and numerous small beaches, with constant ups and downs.

We highlight the Playa del Silencio, between Ballota and Tablizo, as well as the Hermitage of La Regalina, in the vicinity of Cadavedo, as the most interesting places to visit.

Arrival in Cadavedo. End of the stage.

  • Duration: 4h
  • Difficulty: Low

Breakfast and start of the stage.

We will notice a contrast between the coastal hillsides and the valleys near the Marina, with the typical villages of this area of Asturias. The small difficulties of this stage will be the ascent in Canero and the ascent to the Atalaya viewpoint in Luarca.

The most significant part of the stage awaits us in the splendid town of Luarca, with its viewpoints, the fishing port, the lighthouse, the cemetery (one of the most beautiful in Spain, due to its location facing the sea), as well as numerous Indiano houses.

Arrival in Luarca. End of the stage.

  • Duration: 7h 15m
  • Difficulty: Moderate

Breakfast and start of the stage.

This stage goes through the Western Marina, with the Navia estuary as the main attraction. We will walk very close to, or on, the N-634 for several kilometers, with gentle slopes. This area definitively marks the Galician influence in Asturias due to its proximity.

The most significant monuments we encounter on this stage are: the Palace of the Campo Osorio in Piñera. In Navia: the Hermitage of San Roque, the medieval wall, and Indiano houses. In Cartavio, the Parish Church of Santa María (10th century).

Arrival in A Caridad. End of the stage.

  • Duration: 5h 15m
  • Difficulty: Low

Breakfast and start of the stage.

The official route presents a very comfortable stage, away from population centers. Alternatively, you can choose an alternative route to approach the coast and visit the beautiful town of Tapia de Casariego. In both cases, we will enter Ribadeo, crossing the Bridge of the Saints, which spans the Eo estuary, giving its name to the beautiful city.

In Ribadeo, besides the beautiful views of the estuary, with Castropol and Vegadeo on the other side, if we have time, we should not miss the visit to the Beach of the Cathedrals, 10 km from the city.

Arrival in Ribadeo. End of our Camino de Santiago from Ribadeo. If you have more days, you can extend your Camino de Santiago from Ribadeo to Santiago.

We’ve reached the last day of your journey! Enjoy a breakfast and conclude this unforgettable experience with us.
