After crossing the village, continue along this road until you reach the old Poo road, which you take to the left across the railway line. After Poo and the Vallina stream, you will continue along the road for 800 meters to take the detour, on the right, which leads to the monastery of San Salvador de Celorio. The path borders the beach of Palombina and links to a track that continues to Barro, where it merges with the local road that continues towards the Niembro River. After crossing a bridge, take the slope de Niembro, next to the Santín chapel, at the end, cross a local road and continue west until the height of El Valle where, on the right, the path of the Sea that, after passing through Amelladero, descends with a steep slope to the monastery of San Antolín de Bedón. The Bedón River is crossed by the road and continues along it until you find the detour to Naves. Cross the town and continue towards Villahormes, where you take the road to the cemetery and, about 500 meters from the Llagañas stream, the track that, on the left, leads to La Venta. Moving westwards, we reach the Huergo bridge over the San Cecilio river, a few meters later we take a deviation to the left that leads to Nueva.

From Nueva you exit on the AS-263 road and crossing the national road through a low level you reach Piñeres; it turns to the left and passes very close to the pilgrim hostel. Facing, it is linked to the road of La Pesa that follows, to the right, for about 300 meters until you reach the road that opens to the left and leads to the church of San Pedro de Pría. Go down the path that starts from the church heading north until you reach a track that leads to La Pesa; here it turns to the left and connects with the Llames road. A new turn to the left and, at after 300 meters, another turn on the right leads to the Aguamía Bridge. In front you ascend to La Cereceda en Cuerres, and cross the train track, continuing along the road to Toriello. From Toriello, the road continues northwest, crosses the railway line and runs almost straight through Sobares, Argunadieyo and La Espina, where the railway line crosses and a little further on the AS-263 road, continuing along the section that passes through the soccer field and that road to El Portiello and Ribadesella.
