Asturias

Tour overview

Asturias is honest, authentic, full of life, respectful of the past and present, attentive, courageous, welcoming, modern and cosmopolitan.

This is just the start of a unique experience for which you are going to need all five senses. Without them you will not be able to taste its gastronomy, be stunned by its architecture, breathe its nature, listen to its urban heartbeat or enjoy its hospitality.

Asturian cuisine, rich and diverse, traditional and avant-garde, with its own personality and discourse. Possibly one of the most fully-stocked and interesting larders in Spain.

Twelve temples and three civil buildings, dated between the 8th and 10th centuries, make up the most complete and best-preserved set of architecture from the high medieval period in western Europe.

Avilés, Gijón and Oviedo are the three cities of Asturias, with three different histories and characters.

Avilés, is a metropolis of medieval origin, evident in its picturesque and well-preserved old quarter.

Gijón/Xixón, has become modern and lively city, largely due to its history as a city right on the edge of the sea, with a port with large amount of economic activity.

Oviedo/Uviéu, feel of this classic and stately metropolis. Looking over the fairy tale like old quarter, is the Cathedral, with a Holy Chamber in which treasures from the period of Alfonso II El Casto, King of Asturias, are kept.

The intense colours of nature and the Cantabrian Sea merge in every nook and cranny of the Green Coast.
This coastline, a doorway to Paradise, ensnares you and will incite feelings in you. Let yourself be seduced!

COVADONGA
History, spirituality and nature in a universal symbol. Covadonga combines a prodigious history, an abundant spirituality and unique nature

CANGAS DE ONIS
The rock art in El Buxu Cave also contains various representations done in diverse techniques, engravings and paintings, with a wide repertoire of zoomorphic and geometric figures.

In any nook and cranny of the eighteen fishing villages of Asturias, you will breathe in the Cantabrian breeze. These picturesque, enchanting towns, with a long fishing and canning tradition, captivate you with the uniqueness of their ports, their seaside walks and their lighthouses and, of course, their people and their food.

Contrast predominates in the beaches of Asturias, bathed by the Cantabrian. From East to West, none of the over two hundred sandbanks where the earth and the sea blend together is replicated. They are all different.

Teverga Prehistory Park is an original, novel project on the European scene, a place to learn about the past and understand human evolution while discovering the origins of art.
