Nature, art, and history are some of the top draws of this verdant region of northern Spain, its roots going back to the ancient Celts and its rolling landscapes and the majestic Picos de Europa mountain range.
Go to Asturias turism to find out more about this natural paradise. Its 10,600 square kilometres (some 4,100 square miles) are covered with a tremendous variety of allures, from ancient Romanesque churches, Celtic dolmens, and Roman roads, to secret beaches, caves, and rivers which draw the sports- and adventure-minded from all over the world. These bucolic areas alternate with hundreds of charming old villages and sophisticated cities offering marvellous cultural, historical, and dining options – not to mention some of Spain’s friendliest people. And speaking of dining, Asturias is known for its food – 42 kinds of cheese, for example, its inimitable apple cider, and hearty dishes like fabada bean stew.
