  • Weather - not climate!

    Come prepared. Here (and in Cantabria, Euzkadi and much of Galicia) you can experience four seasons in one day, summer in mid-winter, and winter in mid-summer. There are December and January days when I can work in the garden stripped to swimming trunks. Equally, it is not all that uncommon in July or August to see fresh snow sprinkling the highest...

    One of my favorite things about Asturias is the food-- see my travelogue! My second favorite thing is the music. I have a particular interest in folk music.
