Beaches in Muros de Nalón
Aguilar Beach
(15)
It lies between the walls of Nalon and Cudillero. A splendid beach of fine white sand with showers, parking, rescue staff in summer and a blue flag. We were recommended to eat at a small hotel, Urzuazu, but we couldn't see it when we arrived we went to Nautico bar instead. We found it expensive but we liked it and did not miss the little hotel. Yet after lunch we went to find it, it looks good, but was even more expensive than the Marina. It is close to the beach and is a great place to get lost.

Xilo Beach

This small beach is next to the famous Aguilar beach. Perhaps for this reason, being attached to this other crowded beach, it almost always has Poquita people on it. As I understand it nudism is allowed and is a real pleasure for the senses to enjoy the landscape, enclosed in rocks, in a small bay with spectacular sea views.

San Esteban de Pravia Lighthouse

San Esteban de Pravia lighthouse opened in 1945 and has undergone several changes since that time, such as the extension of the dam at the mouth of the Nalón River.

The lighthouse is accessible through the village, near the end of the old coal loading docks, which is now used as a sports and leisure area.
Squares in Muros de Nalón
Marqués Square
The Nalón walls are one of the smaller sights in Asturias. The population of the village considerably increases during the summer, as many people from Asturia and other communities summer here. The provincial capital has the same name as the council, and life revolves around the main square: Plaza del Marqués de Muros. The Church of the Santa Maria and the city council are located here, so, in consideration of artistic interest, it's worth taking a tour of this beautiful villa, stopping along the way to drink a bottle of cider escanciada in one of the square's many terraces.

The Pedrouzo Road
(1)
This little road begins at what is commonly known as Viewpoints Road. After leaving La Plaza del Marqués de Muros, head to the chapel of the Holy Spirit, and at the height of the road, at the house of the Marquis, take the path that leads downhill to the right. Two huge stone walls flanking the road strike the viewer at the beginning of the descent, overflowing with abundant native vegetation, and at the close lies one of the many fountains that dot the council. This is one of the best preserved sites in the council, and has passed through the years virtually intact, preserving its original appearance. The fresh running water has always had a reputation for its high quality, and many people come today to pick it up for consumption. All in all, a nice place to take a walk while savoring each step.
