The route

Caution: The pilgrim hostel in Piñera is again available.

Luarca. Smell of saltpetre, some dozens of boats about to sail towards the fishing grounds and a continuous movement of nets, pots and other fishing gear. After this unique setting, our twenty-fifth day is part of the small Plazuela del Puente Viejo, where the Black River crosses to enter Calle Cruises, and climb up Calle La Peña.

To reach Otur, the first population of a certain entity, we will leave behind several parishes of settlement somewhat dispersed from the Council of Valdés. The small town of Hervedosa, literally four houses, is the last before we enter the Navia Council. His first parish, Bao, was accessed or, better, was accessed after a walk between eucalyptus and some of the smoky whipped. We will turn left to Casa Carmina, where there is a fountain available to the pilgrims, and enter Villapedre. Before you reach Piñera, next town, you will have to cross the N-634, open an iron cancellations and pour a stream through a wooden bridge.

Piñera has pilgrim hostel. We will advance in the direction of the Camino to Villaoril, La Colorada and Navia, capital of the council of the same name, to which we access by the old Camino Real. This locality is abandoned by the bridge of the Ria, where the Navia river, Galician by birth, tributes its waters to the sea.

We will not enter El Espín, already of the council of Coaña, to deviate left hand, cross the road and go up left hand next to an Indiana house named Costa Rica. Now, and for two days to Ribadeo, it will be frequent to see through the Camino the cross of Santiago, built by the artist of El Franco, Jesús Trabadelo. The Order of Santiago was founded in the 12th century to defend pilgrims who came to the tomb of the Apostle James. We will go to Jarrio and once there we will pass under a gallery forest, and already through neighborhood tracks parallel to the A-8 and the N-634 and through the arcén of the latter we will reach Cartavio and then La Caridad.
