March 22, 2022 Giuseppe Pratt

Asturias (/æˈstʊəriəs, ə-/; Spanish: [asˈtuɾjas]; Asturian: Asturies [asˈtuɾjes]; Galician: Asturias), officially the Principality of Asturias (Spanish: Principado de Asturias; Asturian: Principáu d'Asturies), is an autonomous community in north-west Spain. It is coextensive with the province of Asturias, and contains some of the territory that was part of the larger Kingdom of Asturias in the Middle Ages. Divided into eight comarcas (counties), the autonomous community of Asturias is bordered by Cantabria to the east, by Castile and León to the south, by Galicia to the west, and by the Bay of Biscay to the north.

Carved into 3 distinct ranges by 2 rivers, these mountains in Northern Spain contain one of the most famous walks in the country.

Having recently toured the Pico's on a motorcycle I can highly recommend this last bastion of motorcycling nirvana, fabulous scenery, empty roads and lovely local cuisine ,Stayed in Potes for a few days, a little gem tucked away in the Pico's...busaman.????️...

Lovely place to visit and discover all about mills throughout the ages & countries, best we've seen yet, even on a showery day in October. We had an English version of the video all to ourselves! It is a beautiful place. Kids old & young will enjoy a visit, quite interactive and plenty of water around! Well worth the €5 entrance. Parking might be a prob in high season.

Always one of my favorite hang out spots to chill in Gijon, Asturias (from 2012 to 2016), whenever I want to escape my city life from nearby Oviedo, especially when the Sun is up! I had some good memories in this beach, with some special people in my life. You won't go wrong, going to a nice, wide, and, "friendly" beach, if you just wanna relax, for free.

An inspiring place to visit. The top of the hill has a Chillida Monument faced to the sea where you can enjoy a privileged view of the sea, the Gijón City beach and the Musel harbour.

Santa Maria del Naranco

Reviewed By VadimM67 - Murmansk, Russia

Santa Maria del Naranco was included as part of the monuments of Oviedo in the UNESCO world heritage list in 1985. Only Cordoba, Granada, Barcelona's Gaudi, Escorial and Burgos were included a year earlier. All the other almost 40 monuments are later or much later. It's hard to understand without being Spanish. Asturias is the core, the starting point of Spain. Everything else, as the asturians proudly say, is just an increment of territory. Santa Maria del Naranco doesn't look like a Church. It was actually built originally as the state hall of a country Royal Palace for Ramiro I in 842. The forest for hunting was here at that time. The Church turned out to be elegant because of the open loggias and external stairs. Its fragility is given by its location on the meadow. The Church is located outside the city limits. You can get here by bus number 2, but I walked from the IBIS hotel in the morning. I didn't get inside, everything was closed, but judging by the photo, the exterior is better than the interior.

The road runs through a 300 metre long cave which is stunning and free to visit. You are supposed to wear a fluorescent jacket to walk through the caves. There are a number of walks that start at the far end of the caves.
