CN22 - Soto de Luiña - Cadavedo - 19,70 Km

 

Itinerary

This route runs through the western coastal rasa and still has no official character, despite being the one that has followed almost one hundred percent of the pilgrims for at least the last decade.

For this reason, we will not see milestones marking the Camino, only yellow arrows, occasional splints and scattered tiles; Yes, we can not put any but, the signage is more than correct. Although it runs apparently through a plain, it has a cumulative unevenness very similar to that of the Sierra de Las Palancas, since the supposed landing hides, in the words of the historian Uría Ríu, "seven hills or small mountains that the natives call Las Ballotas". In effect, the route must go up to seven of these abrupt valleys, molded by streams that plummet into the sea. The altimetric profile is tremendously visual and attractive.

The journey through Las Ballotas featured more than one reference in the chronicles and travel books of different periods. Antonio de Lalaing, Lord of Montigny and chamberlain of Philip the Fair, narrates that "on Monday, February twenty-eighth of the year 1501, seven bad mountains passed, named the seven sisters". In addition, in reference to the "bridge that trembles", through which we will pass, located on the Cabo river between Ballota and Tablizo on the old Camino Real de Cudillero to Luarca, more than one pilgrim song was composed and published in different editions.

This time there is no need to carry groceries, there are plenty of opportunities to snack and even stay, so without further delay we start. We leave the hotel-restaurant behind, heading along the shoulder of the N-632a, which points 1.5 kilometers to Valdredo and twice as far as Albuerne.

Flanked the road by a dense vegetation of ferns, pines and the omnipresent eucalyptus, we leave the detour to a prefabricated company on the left. Without stopping, we continue along the national road, passing under the motorway and going up a slight slope to the edge of the Valdredo industrial estate, which exposes the Camino to a ship of seafood nurseries and a forge workshop.

While the A-8 moves swiftly to our left flank, we pass the detour to Valdredo and progress to the entrance of Albuerne. At kilometer point 135 we get into this town, still belonging to the parish of Soto de Luiña. Next to the sports track we find a fountain, heading now, between unifamiliares with their hedges and fruit trees, to the chapel of Santa Eulalia, in the neighborhood called "Junto a la Capilla", dedicated to the patron saint of this town that celebrates its festivals. end of august.
