have you heard of oviedo?

the beautiful city of northern spain known to be one of the cleanest places, not only in spain, but all of europe.

oviedo, capital of the principality of asturias, is a 30 minute drive from gijon –seaport and largest city of asturias/great surfing destination- and aviles, the industrial city of the principality. all three constitute the three most important cities of asturias. amazing landscapes with natural beauty, green mountains and the atlantic ocean is what you will witness when visiting this amazing part of northern spain. the principality of asturias contains most of the territory that was part of the kingdom of asturias

in the middle ages.                          .in the heart of oviedo lies the cathedral.

 

easy to go around by foot, oviedo, is filled with parks and squares, often decorated with various monuments. in the center of the capital of asturias, lies the old town. beautiful.

asturias has many regional products to offer, dairy being the main one. the asturian dairy products are found all throughout spain.
enjoy them to their fullest visiting tierra astur. you can find it in all three oviedo/gijon/aviles and have an amazing meal combining all the asturian products. if you enjoy live music and dancing, try visiting the fourth tierra astur restaurant, 5 minutes bus from oviedo, in colloto on a thursday and experience the “espicha”.

standing around a long table getting a full course brought to you and have unlimited access to the sidra barrels that casually lie next to you! meanwhile, some live music is going on and there is enough space for people to start dancing after they are done with dinner.

night out oviedoImage

although oviedo is a small city you will get pleasantly surprised by its nightlife. come weekend, walking through the old town by night is not an easy thing to do, due to the amount of people going out! you can party until the sun comes out! it is amazing how in such a small place the nightlife is so intense!
