The Way of St. James as it passes through Colunga

Camino de Santiago Iglesia de San Cristobal el Real en Colunga Asturias

On the Pilgrim’s Way to Santiago, the municipality of Colunga provides access to the Cider Region. Many pilgrims spend the night in Colunga, because it is the end of the stage that begins in Ribadesella.
A couple of minutes into the route, you can see the church of Santiago de Gobiendes, a beautiful masterpiece from the pre-Romanesque period. Following the neighbourhood of Loreto, the pilgrim enters the centre, a small but welcoming village full of interesting buildings, such as the house or Alonso Covián and the church of San Cristóbal.
A little further down, the pilgrim will find the Chapel of Santa Ana, which formerly housed a pilgrims’ hospital.
The road leaves the village via Calle Grande Covián, continuing along Calle Carril before crossing the bridge over the river Libardón.
The next church, visible along the road, is San Pedro de Pernús, just before leaving the municipality of La Llera. There, we find the parish church of San Antolín, which formerly acted as a church sanctuary offering immunity to lawbreakers.
The neighbouring municipality through which the road will pass is Villaciciosa.
