Summary Bustio - Pendueles

Access to the starting point from the LLN-3 in Pendueles and from the FEVE railway stations in Llanes and Pendueles.

The route begins in La Remansona Park in Bustio, a place worth visiting for its interesting fishing harbour. After crossing the N-634, the trail continues along an underpass, passing through the neighborhoods of Texera and Salcea, until linking up with the Camino Real. It then passes through Ería Nueva and the eucalyptus grove in the area of Tina, which descends down to the ruins of the Cistercian monastery of Tina, founded in the 12th century.

After crossing Bartolo Stream over a footbridge, the trail skirts Mount Las Gurizas before joining up with the road to San Emeterio Lighthouse. From there it continues on to the Chapel of San Emeterio, dating from the 16th century, situated on the open field of the same name, as well as to ​​El Pinal Recreational Area. A visit to El Pinal Cave is recommended. This prehistoric cave located at the foot of some cliffs has exceptional rock art, paintings and engravings, mainly of deer, horses and bison. Back on the road, you come next to El Picu de Pimiango Scenic Balcony, from where the path leads directly to the small village of Pimiango.

The scenic balcony offers wonderful views: to the left, the coastal valley at the foot of El Cuera Range with the backdrop of the Picos de Europa and, to the right, the coastal strip and the sea horizon.

The trail leaves Pimiango via the RD-1 road, crossing the FEVE railway tracks and continuing on until crossing the N-634. After that, turn right, continue along a paved road that passes in front of the Chapel of The Christ, then turn left onto the RD-3.

The trail passes in front of the Llavendes Scenic Balcony camping site to then merge with a path that runs in front of L'Aixu stables, traverses the area of Serra and Tejavana and leads to a paved road going to La Franca.

Before you reach the N-634, take the road to Tresgrandas until you come to another gravel trail leading to the area of La Peña. After crossing the River Cabra over the old bridge, following the trail of the Way of St James, take the path up to Plana de la Borbolla Range until you come to the LLN-4 secondary road, where you turn right to reach Buelna , passing through Tobiu and Llavadero.
