CASA CARMINA takes its name from an old corner shop settled down in the current building, which was run for more than 50 years by its owner until her retirement. Then it was rebuilt and transformed into a hostel.
Right from the actual hostel, there’s a narrow and steep track, which takes to Nalón River. This is an elver river where years before coal was extracted from the washing sites of the mines. It became the livelihood of many people living in this area.
Demographically, the population decreased, but nowadays the number of pilgrims which choose Camino del Norte (or de la Costa) which cross Muros de Nalón, where our hostel is settled, is increasing
