Cudillero is a picturesque little fishing port located on the side of a mountain.
The exceptional little village of Cudillero has attracted many artists and filmmakers to its location on a little bay in the western part of the principality. Every day, large quantities of fish and shellfish are landed at its little harbour, much of it being transported directly to the towns further inland in Asturias. Visitors to the village can treat themselves to the luxury of tasty grilled fish or a platter piled high with seafood, all served at very low prices. The village's colourful houses are arranged up the slopes of the small valley that opens into the bay where it meets the sea. Once you have climbed to the highest point in the village, every street you look down offers a different view. At the bottom of the village things get livelier, especially on the central square, which is surrounded by the bars and restaurants that provide the hub of the village's quite particular social life.
