San Miguel de Lillo, the church of the Archangel Michael, a little further up that hill, is also 9th century, with decorative motifs above the arched windows. It was built by Ramiso 1st as a royal chapel, remodelled in 18th century, so looks more Byzantine.

We left San Vicente and followed the wonderful NW Spanish coast (when you can see it) and went to Ribadesella. Originally we were thinking of anchoring but then decided to moor along the pontoon in the marina. We weren't going to stay long, just overnight.

What was interesting is that other options included being a suicide bomber or working for a couple decades (I.e. Basically a concentration camp). We are lucky to live in modern day America!
Until next time,
