Tour description

Discover the most popular view of Oviedo–Uvieo and immerse yourself in the authentic Asturian culture. We will even introduce you to the world of cider.

Why is Asturias a principality? Why are the inhabitants of Oviedo called "carbayones"? Did you know that the Camino de Santiago was our “invention”? What is the origin and meaning of the Asturian flag ?

An official tourist guide dressed in the Asturian hat (montera picona) will accompany us through the most emblematic places of Oviedo-Uvieo to get closer to the most traditional neighbourhoods of its old town, where the medieval, the baroque and the contemporary come together. They mix perfectly: The square and the market of El Fontán, Los Trescorrales, La Escandalera, the Rúa palace, the church of San Isidoro, the colorful streets of Mon and Cimavilla or the outer of the Cathedral.

We will tour the authentic Oviedo through its gastronomy, its festivals and folixes, its History and most importantly, its people. Remembering real people such as Clarín, Doña Balesquida or Pachu Barbes.

To complete the whole experience, we will teach you how to pour like a true Asturian in a friendly and fun way. Do you dare?
