Also from Ribadasella, we took a bus to the historic town of Llanes – this part of Spain does pretty fishing villages very well. At Llanes, we did an invigorating cliff-top walk, wandered the medieval streets, ate another big Menu del Dia, and also visited an odd artistic attraction.

Some decades back, the town commissioned an artist to paint the square concrete breakwaters in front of the port – to create the so-called "Cubes of Memory", making a colourful work of art out of something that's normally dull and boring.
