  • Plaza de Requejo (Sider Square)

    The Plaza de Requejo (sider square) is famous all over Asturias for it's sider and fine local cuisine. The squre is lined with a particular kind of restaurant/bar called a sidreria. The sidreria's specialty is "sidra" (cider/sider). I hesitate to call it "cider" because it is NOTHING like Amercian apple cider. So bear with my spelling the word...

  • Unbelievable Asturian Rice Pudding

    There is a limited menu, so every item is made with care and attention. Food is excellent! A big joke started with me and my friends at this restaurant. I got the rice pudding and I was blown away by it- I mean it was really indescribable- nothing like the american kind. It is rich, thick and creamy- with not a spot of cinnamon. Instead it is...

    Mieres has a ton of really good pubs and clubs for dancing. Many of them are located on the pedestrian mall called 'calle La Vega' where cars are forbidden (on the part of the street where cars are allowed it is called 'calle Jeronimo Ibran).

    The best day to visit Mieres is on market day (I can't recall the day.) One day a week, the market is full of people selling everything from handmade table cloths, to jewlery, handbags, bootlegged music, and of course, fresh produces and groceries. The market is fantastic! Depending on the weather, many stalls are located outside the market proper.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the the evening when everyone goes out for the evening stroll, the Parque Jovellanos is a popular destination. It is a fine place to people watch, which is the main reason people go there. There are several kiosks where you can buy a paper, treats or ice- cream and of course sunflower seeds (pipas) to feed the pigeons, which is a popular passtime. One side of the park is ajacent to several outdoor cafes which is part of the circut people take during their stroll. The park is just one stop on the jaunt, although I used to spend sometimes over an hour just enjoying watching the people.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mieres is not a tourist town, so there are no places that are traps. The only troubles you might have are with gypsies at the market or during carnivals.
