1st Day. Origin - Oviedo.
On the first day, according to the transport you have chosen (own car or rental car), we will go to the accommodation in Oviedo.
We will check-in at the hotel and visit the city. The city invites you to stroll and admire its streets, buildings and markets. We will have a guided tour of Oviedo.
If we have to highlight some places in particular, we would be talking about the Oviedo´s Cathedral with its treasures such as the Victoria Cross, the box of agates or the cross of angels, the church of Santa María del Naranco and its surroundings on the mountain Naranco, San Miguel de Lillo, the Basilica of San Juan EL Real or the San Francisco field where we can find a statue of Mafalda or that of Woody Allen walking near the place.
2nd Day. Oviedo - Cangas de Onis - Covadonga - Ponga
We will dedicate day two to see Covadonga in the first place and then to see Cangas de Onis and Ponga.
We will have breakfast at the hotel and we will set off towards Covadonga.
This valley located in the north of the Picos de Europa is embedded between high mountains and was the place, they say, of the beginning of the reconquest by decimating the Muslim attacks that were approaching these slopes with Pelayo at the head.
The Virgin of Covadonga is found in the Holy Cave where Don Pelayo is said to have taken refuge where there is a small hermitage and a waterfall that falls directly into a large pool.
At the top of the hill is the Sanctuary built with an incredible reddish stone among the green of the vegetation of the natural park of the Picos de Europa. Of course it is a visit that one cannot miss.
We also have the option of going to the interlaken viewpoint to see the lakes of Covadonga.
When we finish we can go to the town of Cangas de Onis. The most representative without a doubt is its Roman Bridge with its hanging Victoria cross, it is certainly one of the most representative images of Asturias. The town is located in the Picos de Europa National Park where you can see its mountains and forests in the landscape.
Depending on how long we have, we can eat in town or visit Ponga. If you want to visit Ponga we must bear in mind that it is a hiking place and see its great landscapes where we may have to walk along its routes.
It is another natural park very close to that of the Picos de Europa. You can visit the Beyos gorge, Buamon or some of its viewpoints such as the tombu la espinera or some of its towns around the park such as S.juan de Beleño or Selaño.
We would return to Oviedo, if you return soon or directly from Cangas de Onis you may have time to see or walk through the city quietly.
We have dinner and sleep the last night in Oviedo.
3rd Day. Oviedo - Gijón.
We will have breakfast in Oviedo and we will do the Check-Out. We will go to Gijón, which is not very far from Oviedo, about 30 minutes. We will check-in in Gijón and see the city. Gijón is a city that is most enjoyed by its promenade. We will take a walk through its beaches, parks and walks where we will visit the Cimadevilla neighborhood where we will find Eduardo Chillida's Elogio del Horizonte. In the views along the promenade we will see in a charming picture the church of San Pedro Apóstol and we can visit together with the church some Roman baths of Campo Váldes del silo I.
Walking around the alleys of the neighborhood we will arrive at the Mayor de Gijón beach and We can now go to the outskirts to see the Monument of the Mother of the Emigrant in the Rinconin where we can see its coves. If we have time we can go to one of the most incredible buildings in Gijón which is the U.Laboral, a city of culture near the Atlantic Botanical Garden.
If you are a golf lover, very close to each other you will find several golf clubs such as the Golf Madera III club, Deva golf pitch & Putt, Campo Municipal de Golf la llorea or the Real club Golf de Castiello.
We will also take the opportunity to enjoy its gastronomy such as the Chopa de la Sidra, Lamb on the stake, pregnant bun or its different Gijonese Calderetas without forgetting to make a spicha that is cider served from the barrel.
4th Day. Lastres - Mirador del Fitu- Ribadesella- Bufones de Pría - Llanes - Gijón.
Breakfasts at the hotel in Gijón and we set off for a day of charming towns, beaches and incredible places.
During the whole journey we will go along the coast and you will find that there are lots of incredible beaches. We can't visit all of them, but some of the chosen ones are incredible and unique. We start with the town of Lastres, it was named one of the most beautiful towns in Spain. It is a fishing village located on a tiered bottom with incredible views. After this visit we will go to a magical place that is the Fitu viewpoint. It has several recreational areas where you can observe a unique landscape. It has a panoramic point, areas for tables and barbecues and much more.
When we are ready we will go to another wonderful town like Ribadesella.
It has such special places as the Tito Bustillo Cave, some cave caves with very well preserved paintings or the Cuevona de Cuevas del Agua, which is a peculiar tunnel through which you can go by car, although now it is restricted if you do not go for four days of Holy Week.
It is a beautiful town where you can stroll along its estuary, its beaches and natural parks. Later we can go to see the Jesters of Pria, which is a natural phenomenon due to the effect of sea erosion where chimneys and cracks connected to the sea have been created.
From Bufones de Pria to Llanes we will pass through 3 incredible beaches, but one of them is unique, the Gulpiyuri beach. Curiously, this beach does not have views of the sea because it has some cliffs that separate the sea from the beach through which its salt water seeps under these cliffs. White sands and unique views. The problem is that it does not have direct access so you would have to stop at Naves and access it by an agricultural road, but if we decide to go closer it will be worth it since this situation makes it a little-visited Corner. It is listed as a Natural Monument.
The last town to visit is Llanes where we will find the San Pedro promenade where we will see the cliffs and the view of the Talá, we will go along the sablon beach towards the center of the town where we can walk through its basilica of Santa Maria del Conejo and see the Abandoned Palace of the Dukes of Estada and the Medieval Keep that are not open, but are interesting to see from the outside. We can go to see the memory cubes so representative of the town and go to the Llanes lighthouse to the net shop to finally see the most impressive beach of Toró.
Finally we turn around and return to Gijón to sleep the last night.
5th Day. Gijón - Candas - Luanco -Aviles - Cudillero - Luarca -Ribadeo
We have breakfast in Gijón and check-out at the hotel. We have the option if we have gotten up early to make two quick visits to two very beautiful towns that are Candás and Luanco that are near Avilés.
Then we will visit Avilés where we will be accompanied by an official guide. Avilés, an industrial town of the Asturian Community, is a city full of cultural life, very committed to literature, music, theater, cinema and painting. Highlights its House of Culture and the Óscar Niemeyer International Cultural Center, as well as the Palacio Valdés Theater, which hosts works of national interest.
After the visit we have the option of eating in Avilés or in the next town, Cudillero. What makes the town of Cudillero special is its physical configuration where it is hidden from the sea and from the land, it is a corner with houses of different colors staggered on the slope that make a beautiful amphitheater with a square in the center of San Pedro.
On the way to Ribadeo, we could stop in a town like Luarca if you have time since it is an interesting town on the way, but if not, we can go directly to Ribadeo where we will check-in and sleep tonight in the town. If we have time to see Ribadeo. It is a town already in Galicia on the border with Asturias that has some medieval remains with other very interesting modernist buildings that together with its natural environment makes the town a magical place. We can visit the Forte de San Damián, the Panoramic Elevator, walk through its Nautical Club and take a walk around Plaza España where we can see buildings such as Torre dos Morenos.
We will leave for the next day the biggest attraction of the place, which are the famous cathedral beaches, which is a little further from the town.
We slept in Ribadeo one night.
6th Day. Ribadeo - Beaches of the Cathedrals - Ferrol - Puentedeume -Betanzos -La Coruña.
We have breakfast in Ribadeo and check-out. We will go to the famous cathedral beaches. They are rock formations that with erosion have created caves and incredible shapes. When the tide is low, corridors of white sand and wells of water appear that create an incredible picture between its cliffs. Today it can be visited by Booking.
Once we finish we have a wonderful option but that can make us deviate a bit from the path that would be to go to Taramundi which is a charming village of a fairy tale. Slopes, fogs, rivers, streams, forests, hill fort ruins, cutlery art, lots of mills, etc. An incredible picture but only recommended if you have enough time and can make the detour since this day there are several areas to see that are also very interesting and are within the route.
Continuing towards Ferrol we will not make any stops until we reach the city. In Ferrol we will take the opportunity to taste its exquisite cuisine. In the city we can visit its old town, the Naval Museum, the castle of San Felipe or its beautiful main square.
If we have time to see it, Fragas de Eume is a magical place with a degree of conservation of flora and fauna. It is a thermophilic Atlantic Forest considered one of the best examples on the continent. We will pass through Puentedeume where we will see the very long stone bridge that crosses the Eume River and the Torreón dos Andrade. Following the path we can pass through Castelo de Andrade where we will see a small, but in great condition, castle that dominates the entire valley in the Leboreiro rock. Its views are worth admiring.
The next and last stop before arriving in La Coruña is Betanzos where we will visit its impressive historic center with Ponte Vella, the Agustinas Recoletas convent, the medieval walls and the Constitution Square among many areas of its declared historical-artistic complex.
Finally we will arrive in La Coruña where we will check-in.
