Unique

The coast of Llanes is characterized by the presence of carbonated rocks which, due to the karstic process of erosion and the dissolution by seawater, they form subterranean cavities and caves over the cliffs that are filled with air. Sometimes, these cavities communicate with the surface forming vertical chimneys, from where the pressurized air is expelled producing a spectacular stream of water like a geyser (called “bufón”), accompanied by a particular sound that sounds like bellowing.

They are considered Natural Monument, because of their uniqueness, by the Protection of Natural Monuments Network in Spain. In the coast of Llanes there are various fields with “bufones” (blowholes), like the Arenillas, Santiuste and Llames. I visited the one in Llames.

To get there you have to go to the village of Llames and from there take the paved road that leads you to Guadamía beach. Once you are there, take the path on the right that takes you to the Bramadorio de Llames. The best thing is to choose a day when the sea is rough, preferably with high tide. It is quite a spectacle, and the sound is deafening.

Impressive

The high cliffs of Llanes have holes in their limestone rocks because of the sea. When there are strong tides and storms, the air goes out forming impressive fumaroles that blow with strength. It is the origin of many myths among the ancient people of the land.

The strength of the sea is such that not even the cliffs are a safe protection. Cell phones, cameras, etc. can be ruined because of the water.
