6. From La Mesa to Grandas de Salime

Today is one of the easiest days on the whole Camino Primitivo and some pilgrims prefer to walk 5 more kilometers to Castro in order to shorten the next day’s walk.

There are no villages on the road to Grandas de Salime so make sure you have prepared some food beforehand. You will find a restaurant right after you cross the dam reservoir in a house but it is closed on Mondays.

In Grandas de Salime there is an ethnographic museum worth visiting as it highlights the history of rural life in Asturias. There is also an 18th-century church in Grandas.
