The lakes of Covadonga, the Holy Cave, the Sanctuary, Cangas de Onis... Enjoy this and much more with this excursion from Oviedo. It'll be an unforgettable day!
Covadonga Day Trip
At 8:15 am we'll pick you up from the Oviedo train station and head east to visit one of the most special corners of Asturias: Covadonga.
First, we'll go to the Ercina Lake, located in the heart of the Picos de Europa National Park. We'll admire the beautiful views that this natural environment offers from the Entrelagos viewpoint, a perfect place to see the famous lakes of Covadonga and the alpine landscapes that surround them.
From here we'll move to the Holy Cave of Covadonga, where we can find the image of La Santina, as well as the remains of Don Pelayo, the first king of the Asturian monarchy. The area where this cave is located will take your breath away!
After learning about the history of the cave, the events that have taken place in it, and the importance of the Virgin of Covadonga for Asturians, we'll head onto the Basilica of Santa María la Real in Covadonga, one of the best examples of neo-Romanesque architecture in Spain.
Then, we'll visit Cangas de Onis, where you'll have an hour of free time to enjoy the delicious Asturian gastronomy in one of the local restaurants. Afterwards, we'll meet up again and, to finish off, we'll visit the Roman bridge and the Santa Cruz chapel.
The tour will end with our arrival back in Oviedo at around 5 pm.
