A walk round the Santa Marina Beach towards the fishing port and the Marina is recommended for enjoying a pleasant day, to get a panoramic view of the whole town, right up to the Hermitage of La Guía.

Alongside the Santa Marina´s promenade we can enjoy the Indianos Architecture. Those Asturians, the Indianos, enriched in their emigration and filled the Principality of Asturias with peculiar small palaces and modernist mansions, known as ‘Casas de Indianos’.
