But where is Asturias? And what’s the story behind this unknown natural paradise?

Asturias, officially the Principality of Asturias, is an autonomous community in north-west Spain. It is coextensive with the province of Asturias, and contains some of the territory that was part of the larger Kingdom of Asturias in the Middle Ages. Divided into eight comarcas (counties), the autonomous community of Asturias is bordered by Cantabria to the east, by Castile and León to the south, by Galicia to the west, and by the Bay of Biscay to the north. The most important cities are the communal capital, Oviedo (Uviéu or Uvieo), the seaport and largest city Gijón (Xixón).

On this page you’ll find a few alternative activities and places that shouldn’t be missed while visiting the Asturias! Remember a 3-day roadtrip would perfectly give you the chance to discover this paradise and to find most of its hidden gems and secrets! Enjoy!
