Full description
The Asturian coast hides many treasures bathed by the Cantabrian Sea. And we invite you to meet many of them with local expert guides and small groups, so that you can spend an unforgettable and spectacular day while falling in love a little more with the charms of Asturias. Starting from Gijón at 09:00, you will embark on a sensational journey whose first stop is in Luarca. In this first seaside village where we will stop, in the municipality of Valdés, you will be able to discover a privileged environment where the sea and the mountains merge. This beautiful town offers all its visitors a multitude of leisure and entertainment plans. We will walk the streets that saw the birth of Nobel Prize in Medicine Severo Ochoa, an authentic reference, of which the village still has many memories. In addition, we will visit the spectacular Plaza Miares and the Ermita de La Regalina, one of the jewels of the Principality of Asturias. From Luarca we will head to Cudillero, a place that we will visit with expert local guides and where we will also have free time to taste all the gastronomy of the area, with a prior recommendation from the guides. But before lunch, it’s time to get to know all the corners of another of the most amazing seaside villas on the Asturian coast. Cudillero captivates anyone who sets foot on its streets. Very peculiar and inclined paths, roads and sidewalks that end up in the sea. Throughout them the life and activity of the inhabitants of the so-called ’Villa Pixueta' develops. Its houses facing the sea, the famous Amphitheatre of Cudillero, the incredible cultural and artistic heritage of the place, La Quinta de Selgas (a spectacular museum), the Church of Jesus del Nazareno or the Church of Santa Maria de Soto de Luiña, among other things, are some of the fantastic places that you will visit and where you will surely enjoy with its history and sensational views. And the third stop of this excursion is in Avilés. Known as the ’village of the forward' awaits you to discover a land of discoverers, since the city is known precisely as the ’village of the forward' because of a space dedicated to one of its most illustrious characters, a ruler of the Indies who reconquered Florida in the 16th century. Tradition, history, culture and modernity blend into a perfect cocktail provides all its visitors with a unique experience. Over the years, Avilés has also been transformed into a modern and avant-garde city, where, above all, the Niemeyer Centre stands out. During our visit we will also visit the historic centre, which is incredible, the Church of Sabugo, in front of the estuary of Avilés, the Plaza de la Merced, presided over by the monumental Church of Santo Tomás, or the already mentioned estuary of Avilés, which keeps an incredible history about the so important industrial sector in Asturias.
