Between the Picos de Europa and the Cantabrian Sea lies the Asturian town of Ribadesella, one of the most touristic and scenical enclaves in Asturias.

The river Sella flows into it, forming a charming picture next to the beach of Santa Marina.

The prehistoric testimonies of the caves of Tito Bustillo, the cave Rosa, La Lloseta, Tenis, Les Pedroses, San Antonio, and the dinosaur footprints of Teñeres give it a special touch.

It also has several palatial buildings and a great monumental heritage, among which the Romanesque church of Santa María del Junco stands out; the temple of San Esteban, in Leces; the chapel of the Virgen de la Guía, from the 16th century; the chapel of Santa Rita in Barreu; the church of San Martín de Collera or Santa María Magdalena.

Ribadesella is a town of Tourist Excellence which, apart from its image and wealth, shines with the festivities it celebrates: its carnivals, the International Descent from the Sella, the festivities of San Juan, those of the Virgen de la Guía, the fairs of San Mamés or those of Santa Marina.
