Tour description

Oviedo is a city with more than 1,200 years of history that treasures an important cultural, historical and artistic heritage. From its origins, during the period of the Asturian monarchy, until the present time, it has been the capital of a kingdom, a place of pilgrimage, the setting for novels, series and films, it has suffered conflicts and epidemics, destruction and reconstruction. Place of secular celebrations and festivals, its buildings, traditions and gastronomy reflect this rich past. Its corners hide curiosities and anecdotes that are waiting to be told. Come with me through its streets and squares. The heroic city, cut in a distant century, as defined by Clarín, awaits you. Along the way we will see: - Town Hall Square. - Plaza del Fontán. - Trascorrales Square. - Cimadevilla Street. - Plaza de Riego and historic building of the University. - Plaza de la Escandalera and exterior of the Campoamor theater. - Surroundings of the Cathedral of San Salvador and the old monastery of San Vicente (current Archaeological Museum).
