The Mill Route in Ribadesella

We can reminisce about those times by firsthand experiencing the workings of these mills and appreciating their high density along the banks of the Tresmonte stream.

We can even observe their mechanisms, as one of them is enabled and ready to turn its millstones if we operate a valve that lets the water flow forcefully.

Afterward, we can enter the mill and operate its levers to produce a handful of flour to take home as a memento.

The "Bufones" of Pría

Bufones de Pría

The Bufones are natural phenomena originated by the effect of sea erosion and rainfall on limestone rock, creating cracks and chimneys that connect the sea with the land.

The impact of calm waves against the cliffs causes the expulsion of compressed air in the galleries; however, on days of rough seas, air and water escape to the outside at high pressure with jets of water reaching great heights.

The "Cuevona" (Big cave)

This natural cavity provides access to the village of Cuevas del Agua, from which it derives its name, and represents one of the few examples of caves that can be traversed by car. Along its winding 300-meter route, visitors can admire magnificent limestone formations, as well as the life linked to darkness and the adjacent stream. Stalactites, stalagmites, and flowstones are some of the formations that, due to their beauty and uniqueness, sometimes receive names such as ‘The Devil’s Tongue’ or ‘St. James’s Beard’.

The Fitu Viewpoint

“At the foot of the El Fitu viewpoint, a wooden sign points us towards the recreational area. From the El Fitu recreational area, the views are fantastic.

On clear days, you can see part of the Picos de Europa mountain range. It has ample parking space, and nearby, you can find a shop selling Asturian products and a bar.

Moreover, the area serves as the starting point for several hiking trails.”
