Asturias 2.0

Today more of Asturias with quiet beach, some perfect for surfing, other just to relax.

The temperature in the coast normally isn’t high, only with south wind, but in Asturias is less important than in other regions.

The water is colder than in the Mediterranean sea, but warmer than the Atlantic in Galicia and Portugal. The contrast between the air temperature and the water is perfect in a sunny day, even in some cloudy day. Summer winds are normally calm in the coast, and some of the beach are hidden with trees, grass and rocks then you feel better than in the nearby mountains.

Llanes coast the most crowded area of the coast. Very green and with the mountain very close. The most cloudy area in the summer of all Iberian Península.
Gulpiyuri is very popular small beach, inland. The sea is behind the rocks.
Lastres, nice village. This house appeared in a very popular tv series.
Cudillero very colorful village. In the west coast with important fishermen port.
Tipical port of the Asturian Occident
Some beach still virgin in the west, despite is near the main highway that follow the coast. The way to arrive is like a jungle with the river.
Summer rainbow

Waves are usual in the Asturias coast
I enjoyed a lot in this beach despite the danger of a surfing beach
The last light of Asturias
Minery now is posible to visit as a touist.
The forest of the mineral areas are the best, people work and forget the trees.

I did all this photo trip with my own photos. I can talk a lot about this amazing regions, but pictures help to have a good idea.

Is the green Spain, very different from the Spanish weather standards. Is similar to be in the south of England.

Restaurants are very good and cheap. For me is one of the best region to eat well for a low price.
Sidra is very popular in the region, people drink bottled talking in the bar.

There is a local language not very difficult is you talk Spanish, is the bable.

I don’t talk about the capital Oviedo, fantastic city. The main city of the coast is Gijón, big beach of San Lorenzo.

Asturias have 78 Concellos and is very mountain area, then don’t think that distances are fast. Asturias needs lot of time to know well.

Asturias natural paradise

My favorite region, green and cloudy for the Spanish standards but mild in the coast. In the mountain is cold, but there aren’t village in high altitude.
Today I will show the mountain, next week the coast. I liked both places, the food and the colors of the villages.

Orreo typical architecture of Asturias
Teitos is Somiedo, where wolves and Bears are in the forest.
I saw the Bear just a few meters from me, very successful, because lot of people wait hours just to see from mountain to mountain.
My mother lived in this village during 4 years in 50’s
Cares river track is the most popular way in the region, to crowded in Poncebos for park the car.
Cain the end of Cares way, 25 kilometers if you go and come back. There are lot of restaurants to do the come back easier.
The rivers are short but full of water
Glacial lake in Saliencia
Covadonga lakes are the most popular
Cows everywhere
Muniellos is the most protected area, just 20 persons can enter every day. The forest is very old because people work in the mine, then the money was down the earth and forest keep perfect in this areas.
