Costa Occidente de Asturias

• Cudillero is one of the most typical fishing towns of Asturias, is well worth a visit, its houses forming an amphitheatre facing the sea.

• The Selgas Family Mansion is also the centre for the Selgas Foundation, where we can find Works of art by Goya, Tiziano and El Greco.

• The tradition of the ‘vaqueiros’, travelling cowboys, from the sea port to the high pastures.

• Cabo Vidio, where the most beautiful views of the Asturian coast can be encountered, is also home to the oldest human remains in Asturias of the early paleolithic period.

• Luarca, known as “The White town of the green coast”. It is a fishing village with a whaling tradition, and overlooks the sea from a steep slope. Heading towards the lighthouse, we can visit La Atalaya, an old whaling watch-tower, where we can also see the cemetery, one of the oldest and finest in Asturias. Severo Ochoa, a Nobel prize winner, was born here.

• The Sea Centre, where we can see an exhibition of the biggest squids of the world.
