From the plaza de Toros (bullring) you go up to Campijo and under the A-8 through a forest path towards the village of Alledelagua, in order to walk parallel to the autovía until Cerdigo. Once you have walked past the village cemetery, another beautiful forest trail starts heading towards the cliffs.READ MORE
You reach Islares and the beach of Arenillas to continue along the main road for over 2 kilometres. Once again, you go under the autovía A-8 and here you have two routes to Laredo:
The official one is 18 and a half kilometres long, going through Risoseco, La Magdalena and finally Hazas. This is longer and steeper than the alternative route which follows the main road for 12 and a half kilometres through El Pontarrón. In Hazas you can see the church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción; both routes meet here and then you can climb the mountain of La Vida.
You enter the coastal village of Laredo through the Puerta de Bilbao. The old town is built around the church of Santa María de la Asunción, and you can see several manors erected between the 15th and 18th centuries.

What to do and see in Laredo?
“Laredo’s old town -known as Puebla Vieja- is worth a guided tour to get to know and understand its heritage. At the Tourist Office in Alameda Miramar, you can check the timings and dates of these tours. Apart from the charm of the old town, you can also go for a walk on its sandy beach, Playa de Los Niños”.
