It is located to the west of the town of Tineo, is part of the parish of Bustiello or Bustiello de la Cabuerna within the council of Tineo at the foot of the Alto de Campiello. Campiello is a crossroads and in other times an obligatory stop for the vast majority of travellers who passed through here. Vaqueiros de Alzada, scribes, muleteers or pilgrims in their walk along the Primitive Way to Santiago, rested and replenished forces in a sale that since the seventeenth century worked, and is still active, in the place. But it is known of prehistoric settlements in the area that have left their mark on the fields of burial mounds that despite the past time can still be observed, which suggests that these places, natural passage between different regions, have seen the flow of ancient cultures and civilizations.
Between the depopulated area of Las Tiendas and Campiello there is a hillock where there is a field of tumuli. The burial mounds are megalithic burials whose origin is lost in the night of time. They are large structures of earth and stones that kept a dolmen or funerary chamber that housed the bodies of the deceased. In the parish of Bustiello its church is dedicated to San Esteban.
Campiello celebrates, like the rest of the council of Tineo, festivities on 29 June and 16 August.
It is an ancestral tradition in the region, the game of Bolo Celta and Campiello was not going to be less in the practice of this sport, for it has a splendid bowling in a meadow conditioned for it.
Almost all civilizations have counted in one way or another with the ritual of burial in tumuli. Many of the rituals had the same idea of burying the deceased with his belongings and various objects, some of them of great value especially archeological and that have served with their study to know their way of life and arts that handled.
Campiello can be reached from Tineo on the TI-3 local road. This same road joins the AS-219 that joins Pola de Allande with Luarca.
