Tour description

Welcome and welcome to the ancient city of Oviedo.


Join us on our peculiar pilgrimage route , from its nebulous indigenous origins to its destruction during the Spanish Civil War, rubbing shoulders with medieval kings and experiencing political and cultural revolutions.

The ancient capital of the kingdom of Asturias, with its 1,200 years of antiquity, was the first starting point of the Camino de Santiago and the first cradle of Spanish illustration. Join us to discover why from the hand of illustrious and unknown characters who will guide us on a journey through its gastronomy, customs and folklore as well as its peculiar culture full of art, literature and traditions that looks to the future with a renovating impulse, without renouncing its glorious past full of myths, legends and identity.

Magnífica experiencia gracias a Alicia, nuestra guía, la cual te atrapa no solo con sus conocimientos de esta interesante ciudad, si no además con su entonación, amabilidad y sonrisa. Merece la pena dejarte llevar por una experta, en nuestro caso. ¡¡¡ No os arrepentiresis !!!.

I learned so much about Oviedo from Alicia-- about history, politics and food. She was very knowledgeable, and the tour was also a lot of fun! Since I was the only person on the tour today, she kindly conducted it in English, which was great for me because my Spanish isn't that good. Wonderful tour! I got a real sense of the city that I would never have been able to figure out on my own.
