What to see First of all, a clarification: Cangas de Onís is a small town belonging to the parish of Cangas, which is itself one of the 11 parishes in the district of Cangas de Onís. Now this has been explained, we recommend you visit the whole of the district, which you'll find well worthwhile. You can begin by photographing the legendary Roman Bridge, from which hangs a reproduction of the Cross of Victory, and the shrine of Santa Cruz. Another place to visit is the Royal Site of Covadonga (about nine kilometres away), where there is a basilica with 101 steps leading to a grotto with an image of the Virgin and a small chapel. Nature and active tourism You're at the gateway to the Picos de Europa national park, the site of the Covadonga lakes with glacial origins and set in a breathtaking landscape. On your way there we recommend stopping off at the Mirador de la Reina viewing point. Gastronomy Cangas de Onís is a land of excellent food, but it's particularly famous for its cheeses. It's always a good idea to stop off in its cheese shops and delicatessens.
