The Sella River is one of the most important rivers of Asturias. It is not the longest, nor the widest, but it is the most known and popular along with Cares river.
The Sella River is born in the province of León, at the Fuente del Infierno (Hell Fountain) in the Picos de Europa mountains. Across its 56 kilometers, it goes through the Asturian villages of Ponga, Amieva, Parres, Cangas de Onís and Ribadesella, where it ends. The river is world-wide known because of the yearly canoe International Descent of the Sella River.
It is also very known for the fishermen, as it is one of the most important salmon rivers in Spain.
