About the tour

I would love to show the secrets of the former capital of the medieval Asturian Kingdom, the place that originated the famous Camino De Santiago and the vibrant city that is home of The Princess of Asturias Awards.

We will start our visit by exploring the Old Town, the city's wall and the amazing historical buildings that form the city which is famous for its arquitecural features. We will walk in the shoes of the first pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela as we discover the former neighborhoods of Socastiello, The Episcopal Palace and the Merchants Quarter.

At the end we will venture into the Oviedo of today which is a city that mixes Asturian traditions and modernity which makes it a reference in gastronomy and culture.

Itinerary (by foot):

- Remaining's of the City Wall

- Old town including the following sites (and many more): Monastery of Las Pelayas, San Tirso, Cathedral and Camino de Santiago, several palaces, Trascorrales, City Hall and Fontán area.

- Campoamor Theater and Premios Princesa de Asturias

- San Francisco Park

- Gascona Street

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Hola Fran, al igual que la opinión anterior no tengo constancia de que hayas asistido al tour conmigo. Siento la confusión.
