Oreña

Located in a hilly coastal area, this long winding village is now mainly a low density residential area, though still with a few smaller farms with cows and horses stabled next to their owners. There are also a few restaurants and a bar and bread and fish vans rush and hoot energetically through the village.

Lovely walks through the little fields and meadows take you to the dramatic cliffs and to an imposing old church (originating from Roman times). From here, on a clear day, you get splendid views of the Picos de Europa.

A bypass cuts through the beautiful valley leaving the old village road relatively peaceful. The nearest beach is at Cóbreces, 10 kms away, the pretty village of Novales, famous for its lemons on the way, and the historical village of Santillana del Mar just 3 kms.
