Oviedo's high street par excellence, with some of its top shopping, architecture, and sights.
Gracious high street cafés, shops, and more.
Oviedo's principal high street (which also runs along one side of lovely, leafy Campo de San Francisco park) is home to many of the city's main fashion retailers, as well as restaurants, bars, cafés, pastry shops, and a Corte Inglés department store. Apart from the eating, drinking, shopping, and window shopping, Calle Uria is a great strolling street, thanks to its wide pavements and gracious architecture, much of it from the 19th century. And wait, that statue looks familiar - why, it's none other than Woody Allen, what's up with that? (He's a recipient of Spain's prestigious Prince of Asturias prize.) Paralleling Uria is Marqués de Pidal, also with many shops but tending less toward standard brands and more toward classic and unique boutiques with amazing finds that you nonetheless won't spot anyone else wearing.
