SHORT STAY IN LLANES , SPAIN

Lovely old town

---In a month of May, i travelled in Northern Spain. My mode of transport was the
F.E.V.E.,the narrow guage train service,which is now part of R.E.N.F.E., the main train
company in Spain. Starting at the French border town of Hendaya, the FEVE line
winds its way along Northern Spain. Through San Sebastian, Bilbao, Santander, LLanes. and
on to Ferrol. On this occasion i was staying 2 nights in Llanes. ----The hotel was the Don Paco, it is in a historic building, which used to be a Convent. All the modern things inside. It was 3 star { going on to 4.] The staff were very friendly. The man on the reception gave me a route that takes in most of the interesting places. Starting from the hotel, proceeded to Sablon Beach, then San Pedro walk on the grassy cliffs ,down
the steps from cliffs to Cubes of Memory. Taking the path to the bridge over the
harbour, to the path that goes to the Lighthouse. From there return to explore town
centre . Great !. ---See map. ------Llanes is in Asturias North Spain, it is a lovely
town a traditional fishing port. The town wall dates from 1206 AD. LLANES,  SPAIN.    FEVE  railway  station, in  Llanes.-- --Train to  Santander  over  2  hours.
