Let us start with our discovery tour at the old university town of Oviedo with its picturesque old town centre which entices for a stroll. The starting point will be the late gothic cathedral San Salvador from where one can go on various tours around the old town centre.
In the old town centre of Oviedo
A very good starting point for discovering the Cantabrian Mountains is the small town of Cangas de Onis which radiates cosiness with its just 7,000 inhabitants. Before you go towards the mountains it is worth planning in a detour to the romantic stone bridge in the town centre which one has been able to maintain in original historical condition. Also worth a trip is the place of pilgrimage Covadonga that is just a couple of minutes away by car. Should you visit the basilica and grotto of Our Lady of Covadonga on a Sunday or public holiday you will see firsthand how religious the Spanish are.
Holidaymakers can select from around eight holiday apartments and houses in Cangas de Onis which vary in furnishing and size. This cosy holiday apartment for a couple is a reasonably priced accommodation which can be booked from 280 Euros per week. Should you prefer to spend a vacation in a authentic furnished Asturias house then you may find this house to your liking.
