If there’s such a thing as the perfect combination of culture, nature and gastronomy, then you’ll find it in Asturias. The first thing to catch your attention when you travel to this region in what is known as Green Spain is its spectacular scenery. This can be seen in places such as the Picos de Europa National Park, and at one of its most legendary sites: the Covadonga Lakes. As well as the mountains, you’ll be able to enjoy beautiful beaches in holiday resorts such as Llanes, Ribadesella, Gijón and Cudillero. These magnificent settings are ideal for contemplating from any of the numerous viewing points, or for enjoying a range of water sports such as surfing.
Gastronomy in Asturias is synonymous with a total dedication to the cult of good food. Cabrales cheese, the typical Asturian bean stew known as “fabada”, cider made from local apples... There are a whole host of typical dishes and products that are guaranteed to leave visitors with a delicious aftertaste.
