RibadesellaSpain

Its privileged location between the Cantabrian Sea and the Picos de Europa mountains marks the character of the pretty village of Ribadesella.

Enjoy a holiday in Ribadesella and explore a village that owes both its name and international fame to the river flowing through it, thanks to the major canoeing event, the International Descent of the Sella, held on the first Saturday of August. Find a deal for a cheap trip to Ribadesella and join this popular sporting event. Cheer on the professional canoeists from all over the world from the river walk as they pass under the Arriondas and Ribadesella bridges or take them on in your own canoe. The party continues afterwards as you try the magnificent local cider and tasty dishes prepared with fish from the Cantabrian Sea or meat from the Picos de Europa.

Don't pass up the chance to get a convenient package holiday to Ribadesella to visit one of the most important examples of prehistoric art, the world-famous Tito Bustillo caves, declared a World Heritage Site for its magnificent paintings and etchings, exemplified in the Great Panel. Continue investigating its history by contemplating the dinosaur prints, which have made the cliffs of Ribadesella a real-life Jurassic park.

Climb up to the hermitage of La Guía and follow the historical port promenade or the La Grúa promenade with your eyes, or watch the fine golden sand of the Santa Marina beach and its elegant promenade, where you'll find impressive mansions and Spanish-American colonial houses. Lose yourself among the labyrinth of narrow streets in the old town, which still holds the splendour of times past thanks to its stone houses with majestic coats of arms from respected families and flower-adorned balconies.

To reach Ribadesella, fly to Asturias airport, which is about 60 miles away, or take advantage of its excellent transport links by motorway with the various cities in northern Spain.

Breathe in the history, lose yourself along its mountain tracks, wander its wild coves and impressive cliffs or taste the local cuisine. Discover why Ribadesella is a perfect destination for everyone.
