The countryside around Taramundi is very different from around Trabada. Gone are the gentle green valleys and hills covered with Eucalyptus trees. Here there are steep sided valleys and gorges, with much higher mountains and hillsides covered with deciduous trees. The rivers in the valley bottoms are littered with old water mills and there is a great one that you can visit at Mazonovo. Taramundi itself is very pretty wth lots of nice stone buildings and plenty of places to eat and drink. The Asturian food is very different to the Galician food - it is much more rustic with less fish and many more stews. The most famous is the 'Fabada'.
There is also a fantastic little hamlet at Teixois which you can walk to from Taramundi if you want. Here there is a little restaurant and bar as well as another water mill and some beautiful old stone houses. You can of course drive there if you are feeling less energetic!!
