Nuestro guía Fernando nos hizo un tour muy entretenido y detallado por la Catedral de Oviedo, explicándonos toda la historia del edificio, a la vez que lo relacionaba con la situación de la ciudad de Oviedo en esos momentos. Es un monumento que merece mucho la pena visitar, porque está cargado de historias y hechos relevantes para la capital asturiana. Fernando es un guía con el que nunca te aburres, porque te aporta mucha información y, además, de calidad. Por lo tanto, no dudéis en contratar este tour, porque es muy interesante.
