Day 1: Gijón
Day 1: Gijón

Gijón is the most populated city in Asturias. It is worth getting lost in its old town and enjoying its Plaza Mayor, the Jovellanos House Museum, the San Pedro church and the Revillagigedo Palace. Arrival in Gijón on behalf of the pilgrims.

Accommodation in Gijón.

Day 2: Gijón - Avilés (25.4 km ~ 6 hours)
Day 2: Gijón - Avilés (25.4 km ~ 6 hours)

Difficulty level: medium.

We leave Gijón to enter a green and rural landscape. The profile of the stage is quite simple, without much worry. We drive through small towns like Pavierna and Santa Eulalia, where the Church of Santa Eulalia is located. The rest of the route follows the course of the Ría de Avilés. Avilés ended today's stage. It is an industrial city, but also has an interesting old town. As sights we can mention the Plaza de España with the town hall and the Palace of the Marquis of Ferrera (currently a hotel), the Church of San Nicolás de Bari and the Palace of García Pumarino.

Accommodation in Aviles.

Day 3: Avilés - Cudillero (30 km ~ 7 hours)
Day 3: Avilés - Cudillero (30 km ~ 7 hours)

Difficulty: easy.

It is a fairly long stage, but of a low level of difficulty. We encounter quite a few, but moderate bumps .. For the first few kilometers we approach the coast in Salinas, but almost the entire route runs inland and on asphalt paths. Several rivers cross our path. To get to Muros de Nalón we have to cross the Nalón river. As soon as we have passed the river, we go through the interior again until we reach the coast in Cudillero. Cudillero is a picturesque and charming fishing village.

Accommodation in Cudillero

Day 4: Cudillero - Ballota (22.8 km ~ 5 hours)
Day 4: Cudillero - Ballota (22.8 km ~ 5 hours)

Difficulty level: easy.

The first part leads through the interior, but as soon as we reach Soto de Luiña, the profile changes completely. The second part of the day runs near the coast with beautiful green landscapes without large bumps, a well-marked section with numerous cities and access to impressive beaches. The inconsistencies are common again, but moderate. It is a day full of great natural beauty. The day ends in Ballota.

Accommodation in Ballota.

Day 5: Ballota - Luarca (23.7 km ~ 6 hours)
Day 5: Ballota - Luarca (23.7 km ~ 6 hours)

Difficulty level: easy.

As at the end of the previous day, the first kilometers of this new day take us close to the coast, with a view of the beaches and towering cliffs as far as Cadavevo. From here we return to go through further inner landscapes. It is a fairly quiet and easy stage, we come through small towns such as San Cristóbal or Querúa. The only notable difficulty on the stage is the short but steep climb at the exit of the Hotel Canero, which once passed the small town of Chano de Canero. Once that climb is over, the rest is a breeze. We are a few kilometers from the end of the stage, Luarca. It is a small but nice fishing village.

Accommodation in Luarca.

Day 6: Luarca - Navia (20.1 km ~ 5 hours)
Day 6: Luarca - Navia (20.1 km ~ 5 hours)

Difficulty level: easy.

The first kilometers from Luarca are ascending but moderate. We cross the Barayo River and descend to Villapedre. The stage is far from the coast, we cross numerous cities and spend a large part of the route near a national road. Nevertheless, the rivers will continue to be our travel companions. Our destination today in Navia.

Accommodation in Navia.

Day 7: Navia - Ribadeo (31.7 km Tol option - 32.8 km Tapia de Casariego option ~ 8 hours)
Day 7: Navia - Ribadeo (31.7 km Tol option - 32.8 km Tapia de Casariego option ~ 8 hours)

Difficulty level: easy.

Today's stage begins with a choice: Tol or Tapias de Casariego? The Tapias de Casariego option takes us along the coast, while Tol leads us inland. Both itineraries have no unevenness problems, but it is advisable to choose Tapias de Casariego as this option offers more cities and therefore more services. In addition, Tapias de Casariego is a fishing village with a beautiful harbor. In each of the two routes we have to cross the Ría del Eo to get to Ribadeo and therefore to spend our first night in Galicia. We are getting closer.

Accommodation in Ribadeo.
