It was a bliss of bends as we headed west along the north coast, passing Bilbao and Santander on the way while sticking to the back roads as much as possible. The destination for today was Comillas, a unique spot as it is one of the very few outside Barcelona where Gaudi has designed some architecture.

Almost all of the cows we saw in Asturias wore cowbells, just like the cows in Switzerland do. The only cows that didn’t wear cowbells were quite small, so a lot of calves and young cows didn’t wear them.

In the evening there was a performance in the towns square. We didn't attend but listened to the seagulls, surprisingly in tune, joining along.
