Having driven up the hill along with many others - we were barred entry as too many other people were already there. We thought September would be quieter. So have still only seen photos!

Hello Natasha! I don’t know about the shuttle times because I went up to the Lakes on my bike, but I highly recommend you stay at the Parador in Cangas de Onis, It’s beautiful place.

Park your car as close to the Basilica & Cave as possible & catch the bus from there, (4-5 parking areas where they also sell your ticket to the bus), quite convinient.
