    Ribadesella station.

    The station is about a 10 minute walk up a hill. Tickets can be bought at station or on train. In February I was the only one to board train. The stationmaster signalled to me with a flick of his fingers 3 times to say the train was 15 minutes late. This was my travel along FEVE from Ferrol to Hendaye .This section Ribadesella 11-00 to Santander 13-46 There is a bus station in town . Buses to Gijon ,Oviedo, Santader and others. The FEVE train is modern but does not have refreshment bar, there is a toilet on board

    Most of northern Spain's coastline is well connected by a narrow gauge railway operated by FEVE (Ferrocarriles de Via Estrecha), which is nowadays integrated in the Spanish national railway company RENFE.

    During our two weeks in the area we used the FEVE trains several times. For example we arrived to Ribadesella by FEVE train from Llanes. The trip took 35 minutes and a single ticket was 2,45 Euro.

    We left Ribadesella to San Vicente de la Barquera also by FEVE train. A single ticket for the 80 minutes trip set us back 4,60 Euro.

    FEVE trains are not very frequent, so it makes sense to have a look at the timetable in advance. Also the trains are quite slow, but very cheap and convenient. And yes, they have a toilet on board.

    Ribadesella's FEVE train station is located a 10 minutes walk uphill in eastern direction from the bridge Puete del Sella. It can be found at the street Carretera de la Estacion.

    As FEVE nowadays belongs to RENFE the best info about the timetables can be get on the RENFE website. FEVE's own website is a bit outdated.

    With only about 6200 inhabitants Ribadesella is small enough to be best explored on foot. Although it is situated on a very large area on both banks of the river Rio Sella, the main sights can be found in walking distance to the old town (Villa Vieja).

    Ribadesella is also a popular stop on the northern route of the Saint-James Way to Santiago de Compostela (Camino del Norte), also known as costal route. The way is usually marked by a scallop, often in yellow colour on a blue background.

    The part to Ribadesella starts in Llanes and the walking distance is 27,6 km.

    A marvellous train ride from Oviedo to Ribadesella takes around 2 hours through some beautiful countryside, at a very good price. The station is just out of town, walk downhill!
