Indiano houses, mansions and gardens, amphitheatre, harbour and beaches, very unspoilt, the "pixueto" vernacular, "curadillo" wind-dried fish... land and sea, fishing and livestock, Indianos, seafood casseroles. An eclectic and surprising life. That's Cudillero

The natural amphitheatre that is the borough capital, Cudillero, makes it one of the most famous, admired and photographed fishing towns in Northern Spain, and a clear example of both the seafaring origins and fishing tradition of this recondite spot hidden in its natural haven, also known as the Villa Pixueta, in reference to the unique socio-linguistic slang that the people of this singular community has always used to communicate among themselves. A walk around the town is a must: monuments, fishermen's houses hung with typical "curadillos" - fish, usually small sharks, hung out to dry in the wind (a primitive form of conservation) which constitute a very typical and unique local delicacy, shops, the lighthouse, the harbour, a snack or seafood meal... And to round off the visit, a trip around the borough leads to unique havens such as Silencio Beach, Gueirua Beach, Artedo Cove, San Pedro de la Rivera Beach and unmatched panoramic views of Cape Vidío, one of the major headlands and cliffs on the Asturian coast.

Though not only the beaches are charming in Cudillero; a visit to Faedo Valley or, on a more cultural bent, to Selgas Mansion in El Pito, gives an idea of the natural and cultural wealth of this borough.
