LLanesTown is awesome for a walking tour. Starting from Don Paco Hotel you could reach easily well known Saint Peter´s Walk, a balcony over the sea and one of the most popular LLanes attractions. Northward from this place lies the big sea while the uprightness of the successive mountain ranges (Sierra del Cuera beyond Viango range) strikes your view from South. The highest peak of Sierra del Cuera (Torbina 1.315 meters) its completely in line with world famous Picu Urriellu (Naranjo de Bulnes) so the mighty LLanes whalers used to take that bearing called “The son over the father” when they returned to the harbour.
Walking eastward the cliffs there is a starway that drives you into SablonBeach and the Town Walls – Tourism Office is placed in the Tower – inside the Historic Downtown. Right from the Tower you could see Duque de Estrada Palace burnt during the Napoleonic War, at left Cercado Palace (XVIIth Century) and in front Our Lady of the Council Basilica (XIIIth –XVIth) with a beautiful plateresque reredos (XVI th).
