This Holiday in a nutshell
  • little-known city with an attractive old quarter
  • notes for a self-guided city walking tour included
  • well-located, stylish hotels
  • enjoy as an add-on to another Inntravel holiday in Asturias

After a few days exploring the rugged, green mountains of the Picos de Europa further east, Oviedo comes as something of a surprise. The thriving regional capital, though not huge, feels like a metropolis in comparison to the small stone-built villages in the Picos yet, like the mountains, thankfully remains off the tourist trail.

The Asturians traditionally drink cider rather than wine or beer, with dedicated bars (sidrerĂ­as) in Oviedo and throughout the region. There is a whole ritual surrounding the way it is poured and drunk, making it an experience not to be missed!
     
Oviedo has its fair share of sights, not least the Gothic cathedral, the regional museum of fine arts, the archaeological museum and the pre-Romanesque churches on a nearby hillside, but just as much pleasure is to be had roaming the pedestrianised old quarter, coming by chance upon elegant old palaces and the sculptures of people and animals which are dotted about the pavements.

The average maximum daytime temperatures and monthly rainfall relate to the nearest weather station and are intended as a guide only.

Late May, June and September see the most settled weather, but conditions are changeable, and there is always the chance of rain whenever you travel - the landscape wouldn't be so green otherwise. Fortunately, rain showers don't tend to last long, usually giving over quickly to sunshine.
