There are different ways to get to Santiago de Compostela. Although some Jacobean routes are more frequented than others, each and every one of them has a unique charm. The experience of the Camino de Santiago is engraved in the memory, and Asturias is one of the autonomous communities that can boast that its lands in the north of the peninsula pass different pilgrim routes with a beauty and uniqueness like no other.
From the Asturian side you can discover a large number of tourist and cultural attractions. The Principality is one of the best destinations in Spain where you can get to know in depth its mountain villages, its spectacular maritime panoramas bordering the Cantabrian Sea, its extensive gastronomy, its popular traditions or multiple historical pieces such as the Monastery of Santa María La Real de Obona.
The monastery of Santa María La Real is located in the town of Obona in the municipality of Tineo (Asturias). It is a Benedictine temple that was declared a National Monument on May 14, 1982 and is believed to have been founded by Prince Adelgaster, the bastard son of King Don Silo. The building also has a great relevance within the interior Jacobean route.
Almost from the origins of the Jacobean phenomenon in Asturias, pilgrims came to this monastery in search of help on their way to Santiago de Compostela. The monks were at the service of the travelers, providing them with help and care. There are also several archives in the handwriting of King Alfonso IX, where it can be seen that he dispatched and signed documents in Santa María la Real.
