Ribadesella is a small (84 km2) municipality in the Autonomous Community of the Principality of Asturias, Spain. Known for its location on the Cantabrian Sea, as well as for the outlet of the River Sella, Ribadesella is a town that forms part of the Picos de Europa (Peaks of Europe).
This village, located in the North of Spain, is famous because of two things: the Tito Bustillo Cave (Cueva de Tito Bustillo), known for prehistoric wall paintings of animals and figures, and the famous Descenso Internacional del Sella (International Descent of the Sella) takes place, where oarsmen from all over the world gather to attempt the final 20 km of the Sella River in record time.
Ribadesella also offers its visitors history, sport activities, beautiful scenery, nature, and impeccable food, which mostly surround the outlet of the most famous river of Asturias.
