Tour description

👥Small groups👥


Welcome to the capital of the Principality! Join our free tour of Oviedo and let us show you its intense cultural, artistic and gastronomic life.

We invite you to discover the secrets of the Asturian capital on an exciting itinerary through its most outstanding jewels, led by illustrious people who will guide us through the city. We will retrace the steps of the first pilgrims on our peculiar route. Shall we start?

We will be welcomed by none other than Alfonso II of Asturias , nicknamed El Casto. Did you know that during his reign the tomb of the apostle Santiago was discovered in Compostela? Indeed, he was the first pilgrim and decided to establish his court in Oviedo.

We owe him many of our treasures and hallmarks of Asturian identity, such as the Church of San Tirso . There we will stop to appreciate the pre-Romanesque window that has become the tourist emblem of Asturias. Do you want to know why? We explain it to you!

Our particular pilgrimage will start from the Cathedral of San Salvador . Not everyone knows that the most important Asturian relics are preserved there: the crosses of Victory and the Angels, symbols of our territory.

A few steps away we will come across the Balesquida Chapel , headquarters of the Brotherhood of Alfaytes, or more commonly called tailors. We will tell you the secrets of the Monastery of San Pelayo and we will have time to visit the Archaeological Museum from Plaza Feijoo. Do you want to meet this character? He is nothing less than the father of Spanish illustration!

In addition to showing you such outstanding monuments, we will also show you the most emblematic streets and squares of Oviedo. You will end up feeling more Asturian than anyone else, walking through Plaza de San Isidoro, Calle Mon, La Escandalera or Plaza de los Mil Nombres, Plaza del Paraguas, Plaza del Fontán and Parque de San Francisco.

Folklore, modernity, history, legends, gastronomy, heritage, art, culture ... On our free tour you will savor the Asturian essence in all its aspects!
