Day 34: Soto de Luna to Luarca

This section was a bit of a scramble!

The sea comes into view as I reach the top of the hill

Church of Santiago de Novellana

The new N-632 can be seen above bridging the valley

Escaping the road again .....

...... the camino returns again to the sea.

The river used to be crossed at this point by a wooden bridge which became known as 'Le Pont qui Tremeble' (The Bridge that Trembles).

It was particularly dangerous when the tide was high. Certainly there was a strong swell in the sea even on this calm summers day.
