    Cangas de Onís Tourist Traps

    Cangas de Onis definitely plays up one of its regions famous features: la cidra. Cider, from Asturias is bubbly, delicious and not sweet. It's very natural and because of this there are natural "elements" at the bottom of the bottle. To avoid those as well as to highlight its effervescence, it's poured from an altitude. As these touristy items...

    Covadonga Things to Do

    We decided to drive into los picos to see a couple of lakes. Seemingly out of nowhere a storm struck. Between the storm and my memories of truly treacherous mountain roads in Colombia that I was on as a child, I got really scared. I felt more comfortable covering my eyes when we hit those hairpins...I'm a wuss.

    Covadonga Things to Do

    In one of the hills to the side of the cathedral of Covadonga is a chapel that's been built into the side of the mountain. To get to it you walk though a lantern lit cave where you're instructed not to speak or take photos.I snuck a photo from the chapel anyway. ; )

Here pedestrians rule, so it is a good place to hang out.

    Thanks to VT, I knew before arriving at Asturias that sidra was the national drink and I absolutely had to try it. I must admit, I read so much about sidra that I honestly expected it to be the ONLY drink available in Asturias. Not so. Wine and beer are also plentiful. In fact, at dinner, no one seemed to drink sidra (they went with wine instead)...
