What to see Oviedo entices you to discover its hidden corners. Hollywood star Woody Allen said it was like stepping into “a fairy tale”. We suggest starting at the cathedral and its Holy Chamber. Plaza de la Catedral (Cathedral Square) is surrounded by such monumental buildings as San Tirso church. A stroll around the many plazas will take to the bustling Mercado de Abastos market. If you like museums, we recommend visiting the Museum of Fine Arts and the Archaeological Museum. And beyond the old city centre, you'll find the Campoamor Theatre. On the outskirts of the city, be sure to visit the churches of Santa María del Naranco and San Miguel de Lillo, as well as San Julián de Prados church in Santullano. All three are UNESCO World Heritage sites. Gastronomy Oviedo and fine gastronomy go hand-in-hand. We suggest going to Plaza del Fontán or along Gascona Street to try some of the delicious, and pungent, local blue cheese known as Cabrales, or some “fabes asturianas” (traditional bean stew) accompanied by a glass of Asturias' most famous beverage: cider. And if you like it, enquire about the Cider Route. Trips Oviedo lies in the very heart of Asturias, making it within easy reach of cities like Gijón, seaside towns like Cudillero and nature areas like Los Picos de Europa National Park.
