Few towns are reflected in the water like Cudillero. A town that gives its name to an entire western council and that is always its image in duplicate. The great mirror of Cudillero portrays houses that are staggered upwards, forming consecutive urban terraces that are gaining height.
From the heights it is soon understood that Cudillero is a town born and developed around fishing activity. It came to have the largest fleet in Asturias and one of the most important in the Cantabrian Sea. A scene that is still frequently repeated is that of the boats arriving at a sheltered port, which, like the town, is collected and admirable.

Lastres, in the council of Colunga, continues to host one of the most famous port pictures in Asturias. The fishing boats with the stepped bottom of a beautiful fishing village, make up one of the most representative images of the maritime essence of the region.

In the heart of the Picos de Europa, Bulnes deserves a visit for many reasons, be it by funicular or on foot. In the village there is an unusual atmosphere, a rustic reality in which barely a dozen neighbors are seen, and a good number of Asturian houses, many in ruins, including their parish. The town that now sees its tourist services reinforced has a popular bar, which is not populous, where you can eat a good stew and some other accommodation to spend the night.
