Purón: Is located about 11 km from Llanes on the skirts of the Sierra del Cuera. It has beautiful examples of traditional architecture as well as that of the Indianos. You can also take a route to the source of the river Purón, which is easy to get to as well as being a comfortable walk. This is a lovely walk which goes alongside the river amongst lush vegetation.
