Bermiego - gets our top village vote!

Bermiego is approached up a steep series of sharp hairpins, half way up a snow capped mountain south west of Oviedo and an hours drive from our BnB.
Due to the narrowing roads the final approach was made on foot. Life here proceeds as it always has done, at walking pace, not listening to the outside world. As we wandered the maze of crossed paths, no radio or music was heard, only the songbirds, the hens and the hollow dong dong of a cow bell.
Beyond the village is the little chapel, walled church yard and thousand year old Yew tree.

No shop, no school, no pub, no bus stop, no dentist,  but plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, eggs, dairy and meat products, and mounds of farmyard manure, carefully conserved.

Bells on Tuesday
