Camino del Norte (The Northern Way)

Ribeseya/Ribadesella - Sebrayu/Sebrayo

31’5 km Difficulty
Leaving Ribeseya/Ribadesella across the river and towards the Playa de Santa Marina and the village of San Pedru you will get to the crossroads leading to the hostel of San Esteban. You continue straight ahead, up the valley and then down to A Vega. 

From the beach, you continue walking past Berbes and approaching L´Arenal de Morís. The Camino runs parallel to the coast, crossing the Romeros stream up to La Espasa, which you cross along the esplanade. To continue towards Colunga, you must take a detour at La Isla. Colunga has a nice church, San Cristóbal el Real, and the palace Álvarez de Colunga.

The route follows the N-632 towards Puente Agüera/Anguera, and after several detours, it reaches the villages of Pernús, La Llera and Priesca, with the church of San Salvador, consecrated in the 10th century. The section comes to an end in Sebrayu/Sebrayo, a village of only 40 inhabitants.

Tips from our postmen and women

  Ana Peón, Correos de Ribeseya/Ribesella.
“When you leave Ribeseya, on the beach of Santa Marina de Ribeseya, you can see the footprints of dinosaurs, at La Punta´l Pozu, on the west end of the beach; they are millions of years old”.“You must stop at the mailbox of the Pueblu de Abéu, where they collect the signatures of all pilgrims”s”“When you reach the beach of Vega, you can see its wonderful dunes and the village of Llastres in the background”.  Ana Peón, Correos de Ribeseya/Ribesella.
