This is the hermitage that houses the patron saint of the sailors, the Virgin of Guide.

Located in the same village of Ribadesella, on Mount Corberu, with pedestrian access from the end of Paseo Doña Leticia or from the beach of La Atalaya, we find this hermitage that seems guarded by 3 guns that used to defend Ribadesella from enemy ships . In its interior we can observe, besides the religious image of the Virgin of Guide, its walls decorated with a score of reproductions of boats.

The hermitage itself has a spectacular beauty, but it is not less spectacular the landscape that we can observe from the outside: a magnificent view of our coast and our Villa.
