Staying in Gijón? Then you can't miss this day trip to Covadonga. You'll see the lakes, the Santa Cueva, the basilica and Cangas de Onis. A wonderful day out.
Covadonga Day Trip
We'll pick you up from the Gota de Leche building in Gijón at 8:45 am. We'll get on a minibus and head east until we reach Covadonga, one of the emblems par excellence of Asturias.
First, we'll visit the wildest part of Covadonga. We'll head to the Ercina lake and the viewpoint of Entrelagos, from where you'll get to enjoy unforgettable views of the lakes of Covadonga.
After admiring these breathtaking views, we'll go to the Holy Cave of Covadonga, home of the "Santina" and King Pelayo. While exploring the area, we'll learn about the tradition behind worshipping this virgin, as well as the history of the Battle of Covadonga.
To complete the tour of Covadonga, we'll go to the Basilica of Santa María la Real in Covadonga and explore its interior. Also, during the tour, we'll learn about the history of Covadonga and its famous battle. Are the stories all true? We'll find out!
The next stop of the day will be Cangas de Onis, where you'll have an hour of free to explore or have some lunch in a local restaurant. The gastronomy of this area is delicious! We'll meet up again and, to end the day in the best possible way, we'll visit the Roman bridge and the Santa Cruz chapel.
We'll finish the excursion by returning to the starting point in Gijón at approximately 5 pm.
