This is how holiday rental owners described Ribadesella
show more oldest part of the town-ship, on the right bank of the estuary. The two quarters have been joined by a bridge, since the middle of the last century.
This area has been continuously inhabited since prehistoric times, boasting very important findings in the caves of Tito Bustillo, Les Pedroses, La Lloseta or La Cova Rosa, all of them dating from the upper Palaeolithic period. Ribadesella formerly was a very important port. Fishing and salting were very important, as was trade with France, England and Portugal. Of that flourishing past are preserved in the old town porticos, coast or arms and stone facades. There stands out the Palace of the Cutre, today the Town Hall.
The chronicles claim that Carlos V stayed in the town when he arrived from Germany, In the 18th and 19th centuries, there was a shipyards where they put together boats for overseas trade.
The main attraction in Ribadesella is the Cave of Tito Bustillo. The cave forms part of a network of caves interconnected and belonging to an identical limestone formation tin which they open up other grottoes inhabited temporarily by pre-historic man_ La Lloseta an La Cuevona. All of this system of galleries and caverns arose with the erosive and La Cuevona. All of this system of the river San Miguel, an affluent of the Sella. Tito Bustillo is in fact the union of two different caves, each one with its artistic zones and with independent access from the outside.
In the western sector is where are preserved the most spectacular displays. The so called Gallery of the horses, in which there is an abundance of compositions engraved on rock, brings together distinct figures of said animal, together with those of some great bovidae of glacial times (aurochs or bison) an another of a reindeer).
The definition of the details in the animals represented, both in anatomy and in pelage, expresses the mayor achievements in the region’s Palaeolithic art.
The Ermita de la Guía: standing in the Corbero Mountain, is worth a visit for the simplicity of its for and the view it commands. It is about 1 hour’s walk from Ribadesella. Almost at the end of the “La Grúa Walk”, there is a way of access to the hermitage. The old part of the town has been recently restored and the new boulevard by the port invites to spend some relaxing time just walking around.
RECOMMENDED SIGHTS IN THE REGION.
Picos de Europa: Is the most obvious attraction in Northern Spain. This mountain range starts in the Eastern part of Asturias and lies only 25KM from the coast. It is an impressive mass of grey limestone, covered by snow during a large part of the year, with bare ridges, gorges carved out of the rocks, thousands-of-years-old glaciers, sheer rock walls, hidden valleys and spectacular green meadows with solitary little villages.
The Picu Urriellu known as Naranjo de Bulnes: At 2.519m (8.264 ft.), one of the highest summits and a mythical peak of the central massif of the Picos de Europa, can be admired from the AS-114 road in Asturias that runs between Cangas de Onís and Panes, near the small village of Poo de Cabrales.
The Garganta del Cares: (Cares Gorge), the icy green waters of the river Cares make their way between two vertical walls in the heart of The Picos de Europa in Asturias. There is an excursion of approximately 12km between Poncebos and the village of Cain, in León, along a path of peerless beauty. It’s a fairly comfortable track that crosses the river twice on two iron bridges suspended over the ravine.
The National Park of Covadonga: Is the first of all Spanish Parks, created in 1918. It’s includes the Western massif of the Picos de Europa in Asturias, with peaks of over 2.400m. This mountainous countryside, full of rivers, streams lagoons, lakes and springs, where large extensions of beech, chestnut, oak, yew and holly can be found, shelters, species like the cappercaille, fox, wolf, wild cat, marten, ermine, otter and practically all birds of prey that live in Spain. Famous are the lakes Enol and Ercina, of glacier origin, reached on a good but winding road that starts at Covadonga.
The Sierra of the Sueve: Is a game preserve and extends over the districts of Parres and Colunga. This coastal sierra not only has attractive scenery with panoramic views of the bay of Biscay, including the valley of the Sella river and the Picos de Europa, but it also has a great wealth of wild life, with a herd of “Asturcones”, the native horse which is half-tame, half-wild, small in size and rather big-bellied, and which is well adapted to the cold. Mirador El Fito, on the As-260 road from Arriondas to Colunga is an excellent view-point from which to admire the beautiful scenery of Asturias.
The Pass of Los Beyos: Is one of the natural exits through the Pass of El Pontón, to reach Castilla-Leon. The road runs between enormous rock walls, tracing, the route of the river Sella below, between Cangas de Onís and Riaño.
The Pre-Romanesque Monuments: are one of the musts in Asturias. Almost all monuments are located within a reduced geographical radius surrounding the city of Oviedo: Santa María del Naranco, San Miguel de Lillo, San Julián de los Prados, etc...
Lovely small towns as Llanes, a favourite for its location by the sea and easy access, just off the main N-634/ A-8 that crosses Asturias; Ribadesella, on the mouth of the river Sella where the cueva de Tito Bustillo, can be visited, Cangas de Onís, with its famous Puente Romano.
There are many beaches dotted along the coast of Asturias. To name only a few, La Isla is a beautiful sandy beach characterised by a small island which you can reach at low tide. Torimbia is one of the most mythical beaches in the zone, now converted into the nudist beach par excellence on the Llanes shoreline. In Niembro there are two beaches, this one of Torimbia and Toranda. Barro Beach, its shell-shaped and about 250m long, surrounded by two islands and with it’s easy access and presence of services, turns it into an ideal spot for many bathers.
There is a beautiful cliff walk around Poo beach. Toro is one of the most outstanding in Llanes, a beach scattered with rocky phenomena across a great part of its shell-shape. Ballota beach, boasting a “bufón” in a zone very close to the beach which offers quite a show of nature when in action. You can gain semicircular in shape and skirted by leafy cliffs. This idyllic beach is made of very fine yellow sand, changing at full tide into a real swimming pool. In front of the beach emerges the imposing “castrón” of Santiuste, a permanent home and refuge for seagulls.
Vamos a la playa! – Holiday at Spain’s coasts
Spain | From the northern border with France down to the border with Portugal the areas of the Spanish Mediterranean coast string together: Costa Brava, Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol are just the most famous ones. Why don’t you take a look at the atraveo offers along the Costa Dorada, Costa del Azahar, Costa Calida or Costa Tropical. The chances of finding the perfect holiday house are as good as it is on one of the two famous Spanish island groups, the Canary and Balearic Islands.
Spain offers everything you need for a great vacation at the seaside. Long beaches, kid’s playing at the beach under gloriously blue skies whilst the parents enjoy the time out from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy the tranquillity. A dip in the sea for cooling-off, an ice cream at the near-by kiosk or bathing in the sun on a comfy sun lounger.
Also the multi-faceted cultural life in Spain provides for entertainment. This does not only include the many interesting exhibitions and museums, such as the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao or the great museums in Valencia and Barcelona – but also party animals and night owls will get their money’s worth.
Beside the Canary and Balearic Islands atraveo customers favour especially the Costa Blanca and Costa Brava as well as the region of Andalusia in the south and the area around Valencia.
