Very beautiful place
The housing development since the early 1980s is atrocious and unforgivable.
Remember: it's pronouced "Yah-ness." You're welcome.
Without a doubt the seaside at Llanes is unforgettable! It's beauty will move you and you'll find yourself taking many, many photos of it. We walked along the seawall and marvel led at its beauty. I tried but could not control the powerful envy of those whose homes line this amazing shore. You KNOW you want to see more photos of this amazing coast!...more
We wandered over to the narrow cobbled streets of the old town in the evenings and had a good choice of bars for a pre-dinner drink plus plenty of restaurants offering very good value 'fixed price menus'. Restaurants here tended to get busy with diners after 9pm or later and for 9euros you got two courses, carafe of local wine, bread, and pudding....more
A few km from LLanes there is Colombres. There is the Indiano's Museum. In Asturias, we call Indianos the people who go to America: Argentina, Cuba, Venezuela, etc. And when they get old they return as rich people to Asturias and they build that kind of houses.If you go inside you could see a introduction to Indianos history.more
We stayed here two nights and found it to be very comfortable, clean, nice central location to walk...more

We asked a shopkeeper for a restaurant recommendation and she sent us to El Campanu. Like we did in most restaurants, we asked for El Menu del Dia (the menu of the day). We always found those to be a good deal. We had some amazing chorizo en sidra (chorizo cooked in cider) as an appetizer and then we had paella, some of us had sardines and there...more
A cold and wet evening in Llanes and this pizza restaurant just up the road, choice made!Part of the Los Molinos hotel.Busy when we arrived, a good sign, and not disappointed with our pizzas, helped down by a tasty rioja. Mrs B very happy with profiteroles afterwards.Comfortable and friendly with reasonable prices, enjoyed.more
The drive along the coast from Cantabria to Llanes provides many dramatic and breathtaking vistas of the coast and the mountains.
This is a view from the town itself, showing the close proximity of the Picos.
Local favourite drink is a still, dry and strong (around 6%) cider. It's very tasty and easy to drink but be careful it creeps up on you!
Here's Mrs Bonio enjoying herself.
hopefully so, because unlike in other parts of Spain, not everyone (or maybe not anyone?) speaks any/much english. So unless you like looking like a complete berk, learn the basics before you go! If you can order food and book a room and ask directions you should be ok!
I love visiting supermarkets while traveling overseas. Since we were renting a house, we had plenty of excuses to visit them in Asturias.
Anyone who's visited Spain knows how much Spaniards love their jamon (ham). The potato chips, flavored with it, is a new addition since my last visit to this country in 1993.
And in case you're wondering, we did try them and they were good. I only tried one but I could imagine really getting into them while drinking beer. Oink.
Llanes has the most wonderful view of the coastline. I have some nice photos, I will try to scan more soon. There is a great view of one side of the city and of the ocean from the promenade. All along the cliffs here grow beautiful wildlflowers such as clove scented stock and daisies.more
