Bricia is on the outskirts of Posada, the second biggest town in the borough of Llanes. Located less than 500 metres away from the Cantabrian Highway, it is a strategic place for setting off on any trip round Asturias or Santander. First floor of a house that looks like a terraced house, in a quiet, country spot with wonderful views of the Sierra del Cuera mountains, but just a step away from the centre of Posada, where you can find all the amenities you need in this small town: banks, 2 supermarkets, petrol stations, newsagent’s, pharmacy, church and general stores.
The road up to Covadonga and the Picos de Europa (20 minutes away) runs out of Posada and every Friday people from the villages in the valley come in for the traditional street market.
A short distance from the coast (no further than 500 metres as the crow flies), it is the indisputable centre for the best beaches on the western coast of Asturias: the beaches of Torimbia, Niembro, Toranda, San Antolín, Gulpiyuri, Barro, Celorio, the cliffs and bluffs of Pría, etc… (The borough of Llanes has more than 30 beaches along its coastline).
15 minutes away from Ribadesella; 2 kilometres from the Benedictine Abbey of San Antolín de Bedón, declared a cultural heritage site, or 10 km from the amazing Bufones de Pría.
