Oviedo locals, known as ovetenses or carbayones, are lucky enough to be able to wander through the lovely old city centre and admire the Cathedral of Oviedo, which although Gothic in style has a Romanesque tower. The streets of this capital are a succession of unmistakable sculptures of Mafalda, Botero's Maternity and even Woody Allen, who professed his love for Oviedo and called it "fairy-tale" city.
The centre of trade, economy and universities in Asturias, the capital is also the city that hosts the most important awards ceremony in our country: the Princess of Asturias awards, previously the Prince of Asturias.
Try and fall in love with the true fabada bean stew and the best freshly poured cider at one of the many traditional cider houses in the city. Asturias, a much loved homeland where the life and food is good, surrounded by the mountains and the sea, and the sound of the bagpipes.
