Additional information
Cangas de Onis is a little town situated in Eastern Asturias; the rivers Sella and Guena flows through the town. It is well known not only for being the first capital of Spain but for its mountains, caves, paths, lakes and famous Picos de Europa, too.

Cangas de Onis was the first town recognized by the Asturian and Cantabrian leaders at the beginning of the Reconquest (8th century). The town is the main entrance for visitors to the Picos de Europa National Park, and is renowned for is market cheeses such as Cabrales, Beyos and Gamoneu.

In the town itself, the most interesting feature is without a doubt the medieval bridge; more popularly but erroneously known as the Roman bridge. 

Excursions from Cangas include the Picos de Europa Mountains and the Sanctuary of Covadonga. From Covadonga, a very steep, scenic roadway leads to the Enol and Ercina lakes, an area of imposing beauty. Here too there is also a fascinating visitor centre dedicated to mining, which once was an important industry in the area.
