This attractive town in the east of Asturias, capital of the council of the same name, is very famous for two inescapable and unrepeatable landmarks: for being the site of the prehistoric Tito Bustillo Cave, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco for the importance of the paintings, engravings and other manifestations of cave art. In addition, 250 metres from the entrance to this cave is the "Tito Bustillo" Cave Art Centre, with a permanent exhibition on this extremely valuable artistic ensemble. And as if this were not enough, Ribadesella/Ribeseya is the destination of one of the most famous canoe races in the world, the International Descent of the Sella, which is held every year on the first Saturday in August, and which is the only Asturian festival declared to be of International Tourist Interest.
The river Sella, which becomes an estuary as it flows through the heart of the town, marks the life and landscape of this emblematic fishing village, which has traditionally lived from both sea and river fishing.
Whaling, deep-sea, inshore and salmon fishing, its seasoning industry and its maritime trade impregnate a pleasant historic quarter. In addition, the link to the Bay of Biscay is reflected in six ceramic panelsby the famous cartoonist and graphic humorist Antonio Mingote in the Paseo de la Grúa.
On a maritime route you can discover other landmarks of this town, such as the promenade by the estuary that bears the name of Princess Letizia, given that the current Queen of Spain spent many of the summers of her childhood and youth in this town (hence the delicious biscuits called Letizias). There is also the Paseo de los Vencedores, near the finish line of the famous International Descent of the Sella, or the Dinosaur Route at Punta'l Pozu.
In addition, this sleepy town has splendid places to enjoy the "terraceo", good food, drinks, or to take unforgettable walks such as the Grúa promenade, the Santa Marina beach with its spectacular Indian buildings, the Mirador and chapel of Guía, the Atalaya beach?
And an advantage: Ribadesella/Ribeseya is always very lively, especially in spring-summer, when it is a permanent festival or offers you an endless number of concerts, cultural activities, gastronomic days, etc. In short, it is a town with an intense historical, cultural, seafaring, sporting, gastronomic and social offer.
