OviedoOctober 25 in Spain
After several days of experiencing Spanish safaris and mountains, we felt it was time for some city life, so we set off for Oviedo, the capital of the Asturias region.
Our base for a few days was in an aire in a residential area, a 15 minute bus ride from the city. Whilst not the most picturesque place, it was safe, allowed us to 'flush & fill', had a supermarket and other shops opposite for reprovisioning and a laundry close by too.
Our time in Oviedo was spent walking around the pretty old town, visiting the market and finding out about the local specialities of fabada (a white bean, black sausage and chorizo stew), Cabrales, a strong, creamy blue cheese and cider and we enjoyed the free admission to the excellent Museum of Fine Art to check out some paintings by Picasso and Dali, as well as the Archaeological Museum to learn about the history of the region.Read more
