On your right when walking through town you will find the Quinta de El Pito, known also as the Versailles of Asturias. At the time of writing this it is unknown whether the foundation that manages this palatial estate (built by the very clever sons of the local grocer) will re-open the property for guests. If it is open, do not miss the visit, it is an absolute wonder inside and out.

The Road:

The camino crosses through town along the main road, past the parks on your right, and the church on your left. Shortly past the church it turns off to the left and onto a road which becomes a path and dives through the forest again. It crosses beneath the railway track near El Peñedo.
