Llanes
Travel Guide

Admire an old-world streetscape fronted by gorgeous beaches and framed by the Picos de Europa mountains in this enchanting seaside town.

Find out why Llanes is an artistic and historic landmark on the Coast of Asturias when you explore this colorful fishing town’s beautifully preserved streets. Llanes’ delightful architecture and cozy atmosphere are enhanced by magnificent coastal scenery, making it an excellent seaside destination. Discover the rich landscapes of the Costa Verde, which is characterized by velvet-green hillsides that overlook limestone cliffs and the waters below.

Stroll around the town’s streets to admire its classical architecture, some of which features Indianos (South American) influences. Among the highlights are Moorish ruins, the Basilica of Santa María del Conceyu and the Palaces of Gaztañaga. Check out the Visitor Center located in the old Castle Tower for maps and suggestions for walking tours.

Visit the Port of Llanes to see fishing boats coming in to moor alongside the public artwork by Basque artist Augustin Ibarrola. Yacht masts sway in the gentle breeze at the Marina. From here, you can organize a sailing trip or a watersports adventure. Stroll along the San Pedro Walk to experience views of the cliff tops and the Cantabrian Sea.

If the sun is shining, make your way to Llanes’ two main beaches, El Sablon and Puerto Chico. Stroll along the vast expanse of white sand or go swimming in the pristine Asturian waters. Surrounding Llanes is around 35 miles (56 kilometers) of gorgeous coastline, where you’ll find a range of other beaches worth a daytrip. Don’t miss seeing Los Bufones (the Blowholes) or the cave systems at Nueva and Cueva Bolado. Explore the extensive hiking trails that crisscross the nearby foothills of the Picos de Europa. You can also walk the northern route of the Way of Saint James, which follows the Coast of Asturias.

Get a taste of the delicious fresh seafood and local cheeses that are served daily in Llanes’ restaurants, cafés and bars. Stay in boutique hotels or rustic villas overlooking the water in this pretty coastal town.

Llanes is located in the province of Asturias. It is 1.5-hour drive from the Asturias airport and a 1-hour drive from the airport in Santander. Experience Llanes for its folklore, cuisine and fiestas.
