Day 26: Pineres de Pria to Leces

The front of the San Rafael refugio at Pineres de Pria

Capilla de la Soledad (right)

19th century Church of San Pedro de Pria

Although I should have reached the Church, somehow I lost the arrows ...

... and a while later rejoined the road

I found the arrows again but unfortunately misinterpreted one of them and ended up taking a detour up towards the mountains which cost me an hour!

Church of Santa Maria Magdalena at Ribadesella

Much to my delight was open and had beautiful ceiling murals

Pilgrims can cross the Ria Sella by means of a modern bridge ...

... but they originally crossed by boat from the old port

There are some very ornate houses on the route. It was now pretty hot

The camino now follows the valley of Arroyo San Pedro
