I have traveled and worked in Europe, and on many occasions, I have had to explain what Asturias is, what is different about it ... And I always wondered if travelers really want to know or are satisfied with the clichés of cider and the Reconquest. Now that I can consider myself a veteran guide, I really want to convey what Asturias is and why it is the way it is. Let's get out of the clichés, let's get into the city.

Tour description

Have you ever wondered why Asturians are so proud of it? And why is their gastronomy, their customs, their way of speaking different? And what makes this land have strong international ties in times of political emergency? And where does the social sentiment of Asturians come from? And the love of art? All over the city there are traces of the historical vicissitudes that make Asturians the way they are. We are going to discover them and get to know Asturias well. We leave the Plaza de la Catedral and we are going to talk about gastronomy looking at Gascona, we pass by the University, we go to Riego to talk about the Carlists, we continue with revolutions in Cimadevilla, we see the Fontán and we know the most popular, and we finish in the Escandalera and in Campoamor to talk about art, culture and the future.

Hemos redescubierto Oviedo después de la visita con Roberto. Ha sido un paseo encantador acompañado de historias y datos que desconocíamos. Sin duda nos ha dado las herramientas para interpretar los guiños que esconden los rincones de esta preciosa ciudad.

He ido yo solo, ha sido la experiencia de un tour privado, y Roberto me ha explicado muchas cosas que desconocía de mi ciudad, porque yo soy local, y quise averiguar más de mi ciudad. Roberto me contó detalles de hechos históricos de esta ciudad, de la época de la invasión napoleónica, de la revolución del 34 que he encontrado sumamente enriquecedores. Así que recomiendo 100% esta ruta.
