This stage of the Camino del Norte has many historic and picturesque cities. Starting in Santander, you will first get to Santillana del Mar, the "City of Three Lies" and then to La Gerruca. From here you will have great views on the bay of San Vicente de la Barquera, with the clear Ocean in front of you and the mountain range Picos de Europa in the background.
You will carry on along the coast to Llanes, which was used as a filming location for many movies because of its sandy beaches and beautiful countryside, dotted with mansions. You will never stray too far from the ocean and the popular beaches of La Isla invite you to take a dip, before you reach you destination in Gijón.
