7 Nights In Asturias
 
 
This route allows you to savour all of the incredible diversity of stunning Asturias. Hamlets, coastal villages, and elegant cities all vie for the visitor's attention.
 

Day ONE- LASTRES
Arrival in Asturias. Drive to Lastres, situated on the coast. Lastres is a lovely fishing village located in the borough of Colunga, in the north-eastern part of Asturias. It’s a small, charming town, where colourful homes and buildings have gradually grown up and around the port area, at different levels, forming a theatre style.

Accommodation in Lastres, at AST 127, a great hotel located in a quiet and relaxing area.

Day TWO- LASTRES
An unforgettable day visiting the Picos de Europa mountains, Europe’s largest national park, which is still home to some of Europe´s last remaining wild brown bears. Today head into the Cantabrian side of the Picos Mountains driving via Potes, a lovely historical town.  Later take the cable car near the Parador at Fuente De which will transport you high into the Picos Mountains.  You can choose to take the cable car back down or enjoy a lovely hike back down (allow 3 hrs).  

Return to Lastres and accommodation at the hotel AST 127

Day THREE- LUANCO
Today explore Cudillero and nearby Luarca, other traditional fishing villages sheltered by a spectacular headland. Wander the mpressive array of small cafes and seafood restaurants while enjoying the salty sea air.

Day FOUR- LUANCO
Visit the port of Gijon, Asturias’ largest city with several lovely beaches. One of its most remarkable buildings is the 18th century Palacio de Revillagigedo. Here you will find Roman spas and the Museo de la Gaita or bagpipe museum. You may wish, if you have time, to visit Villaviciosa a delightful resort town that is considered the region's cider capital.

Return to Luanco and accommodation in AST 126

Day FIVE- OVIEDO
Leave Luanco and drive to Aviles. Aviles is the third major city in the Principality of Asturias. Its historic quarter has been declared a Historic-Artistic Site, since it houses significant gems of civil and religious architecture. Some of the main attractions are the pedestrian streets of Galiana and Rivero, Plaza de España with its City Hall, the old church of Sabugo, from the 13th century, and the modern Santo Tomás de Canterbury. In terms of civil architecture, Aviles can boast the palaces of Valdecarzana and Camposagrado and the Palacio Valdes theatre.

Spend the day in the university city of Oviedo, the capital of Asturias. While there don't miss out on seeing the wonderful Gothic Cathedral, the San Tirso Church and Oviedo's Archaeology Museum. Just to the north are two of the region's most magnificent Pre-Romanesque churches: Santa Maria del Naranco and San Miguel de Lillo. Oviedo also has a terrific variety of shops, bars and restaurants. An optional guided tour by segway (a two-wheeled, self-balancing method of transport) is available on request.
