The little village of Serdio is a perfect starting point to know the real Cantabria. Situated in the occidental corner of the region and two minutes away from the northern spain highway (Autovía del Cantábrico), the village is placed in an extraordinary natural environment. Serdio is just one step away from pictoresque towns such as San Vicente de la Barquera, Comillas or Llanes. And very close to natural attractions as the Natural Park of Oyambre or the Picos de Europa National Park. However, Serdio is not just an amazing place to discover what Cantabria has to offer, but the village is, itself, a great holiday destination.
Serdio is placed near different routes. The most important one is the Way of Saint James (Camino de Santiago). Precisely, following this legendary path from Serdio during 3km you will arrive at Muñorrodero. There, you will find an idilic setting near the river, with picnic spots and an adventurous playground for the little ones. From there you can follow the Senda Fluvial del Nansa, a walking path in the middle of the nature and sutiable for all ages.
In the surroundings of the village you will find rural paths which will enable you to get privileged views from San Vicente de la Barquera, Tina Menor estuary and the Picos de Europa Mountains.
During these walks you will also have the opportunity to admire a huge variety of fauna. Birds, caws, sheeps, donkeys, horses and other animals that will make any ordinary afternoon an amazing adventure for the whole family.
If there is something that makes Serdio such a special place is its authenticity. The mass turism never reached this little village and, as a result, Serdio has keept its unique character untouched. At the same time, this village is an amusing place to be, thanks to the social and cultural activity of their approximately 150 inhabitants.
A key place to enjoy its social life is the bar-restaurant La Gloria. Situated near the church and with a perfect patio for eating “al fresco”, you cannot leave the village without trying its cocido montañés. Nearby you will find a beautiful playground and the local bowling alley (bowling is the traditional sport of Cantabria) where you could witness regional competitions.
But that is not all, as the inhabitants of Serdio organize diverse events during the year. For example, the popular “fiestas” of St. Bartholomew or St. Augustine, in August, or the popular chestnut roast (Magosta) in autumn. ¡Do not leave the chance to participate and feeling part of this little Cantabrian village!
