Points of interest in the stage 23: Soto Stage from Luiña to Cadavedo
From the hostel of Soto de Luiña you have to climb the old N-632 until the first junction, where almost 100% of the pilgrims chose the option marked as Ballotas, in front of the one of Camino. The latter refers to the ancient Vaqueiro road that runs through the Sierra de las Palancas. No one, neither the Principality nor the local associations of the Camino de Santiago, has so far cared to maintain and signalize it. Since the summer of 2016, at last!, this historic route is completely viable throughout its journey, with the Principality’s own stumbling blocks and its well-drawn and clean paths. This route is almost the same distance from the coast, although something harder physically and does not have intermediate services, it ends up in the town of Villademoros with which to reach Cadavedo one and a half kilometers back from that locality. The pilgrim has the last word, which must choose between sea (Ballotas) or mountain (Levers).
We will now briefly describe the route run by Ballotas,
By Ballotas we will go through several towns of the council of Cudillero, such as Albuerne, Novellana -exemplary town of Asturias in 1992- Castañeras and its Playa del Silencio, Santa Marina and Ballota. So far there will be many opportunities to leave the road, progressing in a low demolition climb through local roads in locality. As of today, they already meet the minimum requirements, but the disillusionment extended for many years. After Ballota we go down the road to cross the Cape River, where a stone bridge does the mythical ‘shaking bridge’. It then goes up by forest to Tablizo, entering the Council of Valdés. After spending a couple more small villages, Ribón and Friera, we finally reached Cadavedo.
