Lovely Asturian towns on the Atlantic Sea

Hi all

These are pictures I took from the lovely coastal towns of Ribadesella and Llanes (Asturias, Spain) while I was visiting my sister during easter holidays. The weather wasn't great, although we had some sunny spells here and there.
Both are very touristy spots, although mainly domestic tourism I would say. Ribadesella holds the Descenso Internacional del Sella (International Descent of the Sella) every August, where oarsmen from all over the world gather to attempt the final 20 km of the Sella river in record time.
The pictures were taken in the morning when there was a falling tide, it's amazing the influence of tides on this small towns bordering an estuary, it gives a totally different feel wether it's a falling tide or a rising one. The same happens in Llanes.

I hope you enjoy the pictures


RIBADESELLA

Great photos, there are some very nice towns on the Asturian coast, those big houses behind the promenade at Ribadesella are lovely
