    LIVE from the Camino On the Camino Primitivo staying at the a Pocina de Muniz

    Getting from Norte to Oviedo

    I'm currently in Bilbao recovering from the shock to my system of the last week from Irun 😅. I plan to follow the primitivo from Oviedo. Can someone please suggest the best point on the Norte to turn into Oviedo? Is it Villaviciosa or Aviles or somewhere else? Thanks
