Tourism in Oviedo

Oviedo is a city in the north of Spain, and it is the capital of the Principality of Asturias. It is a place that, in short, leaves an impression on those who visit it. Oviedo is surrounded by mountains, and it can be visited by land or from its mountains.

Woody Allen and his sculpture, Oviedo

Just by walking along the city we can discover hundreds of sculptures made by internationally-famous artists, which play tribute to other important characters, such as the one dedicated to Leopoldo Alas “Clarín” or to Woody Allen. We can also find many parks and gardens, green areas where we will be able to go for a walk and to relax.

One of the most central squares in Oviedo is the Escandalera Square, surrounded by historical buildings. From there, we can find the main pedestrian and commercial streets in the capital. Close to the Escandalera, there is the historical city centre of Oviedo, where you will be able to get lost while you travel in time along its wonderful streets.

Cathedral, Oviedo

In this city we can visit the cathedral of San Salvador de Oviedo as well, which is placed right in the middle of the town. It is a gothic cathedral which includes the Holy chamber of Oviedo, a building that hosts the most appreciated jewellery of the cathedral, and it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

As we said previously, Oviedo can be visited from the air by the Monte Naranco, which surrounds the city and where we can find the Naranco Christ.

Another one of the strong points of Oviedo, as well as of Asturias itself, is its gastronomy. The city hosts a great number of bars and restaurants where you will be able to enjoy the greatest “fabada” from Asturias, and also the best regional meals of Asturias, such as escalopines al cabrales, cachopo or chorizos a la sidra.

If you visit Oviedo, you will find that it is a magical and charming city. It is a small and elegant place with large green areas and hundreds of monuments, with plenty of bars where you will be able to relax and enjoy the city.
