There are television series that do not put special effort in their locations and others that, on the contrary, choose with great care so that the place of recording is as important as the series itself. This is the case of Doctor Mateo , a series broadcast by Antena3, which will soon begin its fifth season and one of the ingredients for its success is that almost the entire series is filmed outdoors, specifically in the Asturian town of Lastres , although in the series he calls himself San Martín del Sella .
It must be said that although the inhabitants are already a bit tired of the crowds of people in the series, there are always charming people who will help you find all the places you are looking for. The route of Doctor Mateo has two main points, one the town of Lastres itself , a spectacular coastal place with steep streets and charming old houses, and the small town of Luces, two kilometers from Lastres and where the meadow and the Lighthouse that has appeared in the series on so many occasions, mainly in its header.
At the Lastres Tourist Office they will provide you with all the necessary information on how to go to each site, although if you follow the series you will be able to know it as soon as you see it since you will be oriented immediately. The first and most important thing to visit is the house of Mateo , the protagonist of the series. Then you can also visit Tom’s famous tavern , Mateo’s aunt’s shop, Adriana’s house, the radio station where Carol works, Alfredo’s police station or the school.
In addition, of course you can also visit its beautiful beach and the Griega beach, a nearby beach in the direction of Colunga. To get to the Lighthouse , leave Lastres in the direction of Villaviciosa, after two kilometers (already in Luces) you will turn right along a road that says FARO and that also if you watch the series it will be familiar to you since it has also been recorded there. 3 kilometers later you will have reached the lighthouse.
