Day 25: Llanes to Pineres de Pria

Lampost provides a handy location for waymark guiding the pilgrim out of Llanes

Pleasant off-road part of camino

There seems to be some competition for waymarking here!

A stunning location for the neo-classical Church of Nuestra Senora de los Dolores of Barro

The Church was situated across the ria

Capilla de La Animas which is met on the way to the Nuestra Senora Church

Entrance to the Nuestra Senora Church - alas closed

Track leading up the hill of Niembro ....

... eventually emerging at the ruins of the monastery of San Antolin de Bedon

The monastery dates from the 12th century

As luck would have it, I was able to get in to the monastery Church through an open side door

These carvings were in the floor of the Church - probably marking graves (top & left)

Exterior of the Church (top & right)

The route again runs alongside the sea

I could'nt help feeling I was back on the north coast of Cornwall, near Perrenporth (top, right & below)

Church of San Antolin de Naves (right & below)

Capilla of San Antonio, passed shortly after leaving Naves

19th century Church of San Jorge de Nueva

View across the road from the refugio

The welcome refugio San Rafael at Pineres de Pria.
