Ancestral paths cross Asturias from North to South and East to West, trodden since the Palaeolithic right up to the present day. Romans and shepherds used to use them to get from one village to another, crossing or bypassing valleys, rivers and mountains to buy and sell, take livestock to the high pastures or even to go a party in who knows which village.
Recently, these paths have been taken by you, by me, by all the hikers who enjoy Asturian nature, but we must not forget that we have to do it responsibly and safely. The responsibility of knowing that many of these paths are in natural spaces and that in these spaces, we cannot walk wherever we want. That many of these paths have boundaries that we cannot cross so as not to disturb the nature, therefore it is essential to get in touch in advance with whoever can advise us on this for each natural space. This is what the Interpretation Centres and the management of the spaces, if necessary, are for.
