places not to miss in Asturias

Covadonga

We recommend you take the time to visit some well-known tourist destinations and hidden gems of the Asturias region.

The Picos de Europa national park has 200 peaks of over 2,000 metres. Eagles and vultures soar overhead while brown bears, wolves and, more commonly, mountain goats, roam on the ground. The Picos de Europa stretch across Asturias, Cantabria and the north-east of Leon; the main access towns in Asturias are Cangas de Onís and Arenas de Cabrales.

Cudillero is a pretty little fishing village whose colourfully painted houses are stacked steeply on hills that overlook the town's port and the ocean beyond. Tuck into a plate of seafood at one of Cudillero's many restaurants, then walk off your feast with a stroll along the coast to the lighthouse.

Covadonga is a village on the edge of the Picos de Europa. The two stunning lakes that lie just above the village draw large numbers of visitors, but walk a short distance and you'll leave the crowds behind. The route to Mirador de Ordiales is particularly scenic. Covadonga is also famous as the place that the Spanish Christian army first defeated the invading Moors in 722.
