Esanos is a tiny settlement in the hills to the north of Potes off the N621, Potes to Unquera road. You won’t find it in the guide books and there is little on the web. It is reached along the CA891, which is a well made road that climbs steadily up the Bedoya valley through pastures and woodland. Across the valley are the attractive settlements of Trillayo and Pumareñare, scattered collections of white or ochre walled houses with orange pantiles roofs and look most attractive against the lush green surroundings.

Esanos is a delightful settlement of beautifully restored houses, many with escutcheons on the walls, set in very fertile farmland. Many have small carefully tended vegetable gardens round them and there was the constant sound of cow bells from the surrounding pasture. There is a lot of money here.

The small square church with bell cote for one bell, ivy covered walls and sagging roof is at the edge of the settlement. It was very shut up and judging by the height of vegetation on the steps and path down to it and round the door, hasn’t been used for a long time.
