From here you can have a nice view of the beach and the open sea, and also the town's cemetery. Only for this view, it worth the walk. The small church has not too much to see, but it is a different one and also,...More

Going up (or down) one fo the hills in Luarca offers views of the sea, the port, some nice houses, part of the village, the cemetery, and some other things like the lighthouse. Totally recommended when in Luarca to see these things.

Gorgeous cemetery with a view overlooking the blue sea and sky. Ochoa albornoz is buried here. He was a nobel prize scientist from luarca. The small church is well worth the visit too
