There are few things that shine as brightly in the sun in Asturias as the pure jet of the Llanisca costumes... This town in the east of Asturias, which takes the Cuera mountain range and the Picos de Europa by the hand to plunge into the Cantabrian Sea, is a melting pot of the most ancestral Asturian rural traditions. There is no doubt that Llanes, capital of the council of the same name, has many charms: its proximity to the Picos de Europa, its idyllic beaches, its seafaring tradition, its cultural and social life and its gastronomy.
Indeed, Llanes and its beaches are really the coast of the Picos de Europa. But the town also treasures a prodigious history that can be read at every step in itshistoric quarter. Declared a Historic-Artistic Site and bordered by a 13th century wall, it preserves the tower and numerous palaces and mansions from the 16th and 17th centuries. Incredible corners that are combined with a wide range of shops and restaurants.
A tour of Llanes is always surprising, with its fishing port transporting you to one of the sources of the town's wealth for centuries, or the wonderful Paseo de San Pedro over the cliffs. The town can also boast the most artistic port in Spain with the Cubos de la Memoria (Memory Cubes), the work of Agustín Ibarrola, which serve as a breakwater on the breakwater. The Casino building and the many beautiful examples of Indian architecture scattered throughout the town and surrounding area will also attract your attention.
You will also see that many of these places, as well as the marvellous beaches in the surrounding area, have been used as settings for films such as "The Orphanage", "The Lady" and "The Story of a Kiss".
The summer in Llanes is unique and its festivals - La Magdalena, San Roque and La Guía - contribute to this, which between them are more than one thousand five hundred years old and are organised through their respective "Bandos", a very unique circumstance that only occurs in Llanes.
All in all, Llanes is a combination of beauty and lordship that stands out powerfully between the Bay of Biscay and the high peaks of the Picos de Europa.
