7. THE CLIFFS AT PUERTAS
MIRADOR DE LA BORIZA

EL ABUELO 1998

 

SYNOPSIS
Don Rodrigo de Arista believed that he knew what honour was, that was until he came back from South America old, half blind and ruined. Upon the death of his only son, he finds out that one of his two granddaughters is illegitimate.

She has none of the noble blood of Albrit. At the end of his days, he must know the real situation. His daughter-in-law refuses to reveal the information and so he has to fall back on all his ingenuity to find out the truth.

The Cliffs at Puertas: Located in the village of the same name, some 10 km from Llanes, Puertas is right next to the costal path., which runs the length of the Llaniscan coastline. Here you can also find the Bufón de Arenillas This was immortalised by the poet José Zorilla in his poem of 1891, “The Bufón of Vidiago”. Close to the village can also be found the Neolithic “Idol of Peñatú”, which contains paintings and engravings from that time. There is also an exhibition room, related to the monument, nearby.
