Cudillero, Asturias, Spain. A small but picturesque village on the northern coast of Spain is said to have been established by the Vikings themselves! However, its true origins are unknown. But for centuries it has been a fishing village and to this day this is one of the main economic branches after tourism.
The ancient narrow streets offer various routes, that provide abundance of great views to the Atlantic Ocean. A bunch of historic buildings give an insight to the local cultural heritage: Gothic 16th century’s church, chapel of Humilladero, the lighthouse and fishermen taverns are the most popular attractions here. There are numerous viewpoints on the hill, that allow to approach whole Cudillero at once and admire its historic old town.
Why to go there?
Experience a truly authentic Spanish village while traveling in the north. Cabo Vidio – a stunning coast – is found only 10 km from Cudillero and also is worth visiting once in the area.
When to go there?
Anytime, although the atmosphere is more lively in summer.
How to get there?
You can get there by boat and park it at the local harbor. Otherwise the best way to get in is by car. Get around on foot!
