Costa Verde (Asturias)

Costa Verde

Manolo, the owner of Hotel Torre de Villademoros looks forward to welcome you to Costa Verde

Description

The journey along the Costa Verde begins in the west of Asturias, with picturesque towns of unique charm such as Castropol, with its beautiful urban quarter and wonderful views over the Eo estuary, Tapia de Casariego, Viavelez, Navia and Puerto de Vega. The next destination is Luarca, a traditional fishing port with a lighthouse and beautiful cemetery overlooking the cliffs. Another fishing town is Cudillero, with its colourful hamlet sat on the side of a mountain. The industrial town of Avilés provides travellers with a pedestrian urban centre looked down on by the old church of Sabugo (13th century) and, on the other side of the cape of Peñas, the fishing centres of Luanco and Candás. Slightly inland is the city of Gijón, with its ancient quarter made up of the Santa Catalina hill and the neighbourhood known as Cimadevilla. The eastern coast of Asturias is an invitation to visit its long beaches through historic localities such as Ribadesella and Llanes and fishing villages such as Lastres or Tazones. All of this accompanied by examples of American emigrant architecture as can be seen in Colombres.
