What to do in Asturias?
Asturias by the mouthful
The Asturian larder is perfect for the most demanding palates. And its beverages, even better. Because there is nothing more idiosyncratic than cider – to taste such a drink is a must. Enjoy the spectacle of its pouring, take a wee sip in Asturian fashion and toast the good life!
Asturias is natural, but also cosmopolitan. Using public transport, getting lost in Oviedo amidst history, sidrerías (cider bars), restaurants, art and breathtaking nature make the perfect plan to unwind and experience what is most representative in its fusion of tradition and modernity.
The natural legend
The Lakes of Covadonga will impress, overwhelm and enchant you. Swathed in abundant vegetation, these glacial lakes’ incredible beauty is striking. An emblematic place where you can breathe life. A precious corner of nature unmatched by even the most breathtaking postcards. And very nearby, you have the spectacular village of Cangas de Onís.
The most picturesque Asturias
Llanes, Ribadesella and Villaviciosa. These are three of the many villages that describe the Asturian personality. Charm, magic and singularity between the sea and mountains make them different, unique and special. It is a sound decision to spend a full day discovering the real Asturias – that for which only one word serves: paradise.
