Asturias


Discover unique landscapes where history and nature become one. In the west of the Region of Asturias, northern Spain, you will find the Navia History Park. An area with everything from prehistoric "castros" (forts) through to fishing villages. A magical region you will love.

The Navia History Park is an area close to the coast of Asturias with luxuriant forests and mountains. It is also home to a host of myths and legends. Traditional architecture, cliffs, unspoilt countryside, sunsets in peaceful valleys, strolls through beautiful villages… This is just some of what you will find heading from north to south around the Navia River, from its source to its mouth at the Cantabrian Sea. What could be better?

Here we suggest three routes. Each one with its own story. This is a taste of what you will find. Choose the one you most want to discover.

The first settlers

Travel more than 300,000 years back in time and discover the culture of age-old villages in Grandas de Salime. You will find hundreds of dolmens, pre-historic sites and the remains of ancient fortifications such as castros. Special mention should be made of the "castros" (old forts) at Cabo Blanco, on the coast of Esteiro and Castro de Coaña. The last of these is built on top of a hill, and you can still see eighty dwellings within its defensive wall.

Also not to be missed are the Peñafurada tunnels. Here you can see how gold was extracted and washed in the region in Roman times.

The lords of palace houses

A jump across history: we now move to the feudal period, and so to a time of castles, palaces and convents. Explore the remains of these buildings, along with their mills, cellars and looms. Tapia de Casariego is the departure point for a journey into traditional culture. We will travel to the old palace houses, where the lives of the local people were organised. The end of the journey brings you to Grandas de Salime with its Ethnographical Museum, that recreates the day-to-day lives of local inhabitants in the Middle Ages.

There are other countryside places to visit on the route. Stroll through the Sanctuaries of Argul or Pesaz and the palaces of Tox or Anleo. Immersed in the peace and quiet of these valleys, enjoy stunning views from the San Esteban de los Buitres Viewpoint.

Sea stories

This route takes us to the whaling ports of the 16th-18th centuries, with visits to spectacular beaches and the chance to do some surfing. You will feel like a real seafarer amidst the fish markets, coastal chapels and lighthouses. Puerto de Vega is a good place for this. Today it is a fishing port, but throughout its history was one of the most active commercial harbours in the region.

There is still more: come and see stunning estuaries and the spectacle of the Cantabrian Sea as it crashes relentlessly into the cliffs. A scene not to be missed that you can look at in all its glory from the Atalaya Viewpoint in El Franco.

Stories of ancient settlements, their inhabitants and the sea. Choose yours and live it at the Navia History Park.
