In May 2013 we explored the picturesque coast line of Northern Spain for two weeks. On this trip we spent one night in Ribadesella, which was also the westernmost place we visited.
With only about 6.200 inhabitants Ribadesella can easily be explored in one day. It is situated at the Cantabrian Sea on both sides of the river Sella mouth. The touristy interesting old town is located on the eastern bank of the river. Here many old buildings, quaint squares, the parish Church of Santa Maria Magdalena as well as the quaint Chapel of the Virgin de La Guia can be found.
The western part of the town is dominated by an approximately 2 km long beach promenade along the Playa de Santa Marina. Here many modernist villas dating from the 19th and 20th century can be admired.
