Photos: Pola de Siero to Oviedo

The large bull (toro) sign is an advert for Toro wine, seen on a number of hilltops and visible for miles around.
A maize barn in use near Fonciello. The maize is hung on the outside of the barn to dry. This must be last year's crop. Nearby the old palace at Meres can be seen over the tree tops.
Just before Oviedo, at Colloto, the road passes over the old Way over the bridge (Puente de Colloto). Built on Roman foundations it was partially destroyed during the Civil War when a number of Roman coins from the 4th and 5th centuries were found in one of the damaged arches. The bridge was later restored and remains part of the Camino.
