Routes to discover Asturias

To travel through Asturias, we suggest several itineraries, to be done by car, with a detailed description of each route and the most interesting places to visit.


By car you can take a complete tour of the cultural and artistic legacy, as well as discover the forests, parks and natural monuments of Asturias. All this through the Pre-Romanesque Routes, the Prehistoric Routes or the Gastronomic Routes. Many small roads to get lost, to explore forests, mountains, good hiking trails and a good offer of tourist services without saturation.

Route Espinaredo, Piloña

From Infiesto to Espinaredo and Riofabar. Piloña. Central area of ​​Asturias.
In this village there is the highest concentration of granaries in all of Asturias. In Espinaréu hórreos and paneras coexist, these last ones are very similar to the first ones but of greater capacity, with six pegoyos instead of four, corridor, balustrade and greater number of ornaments. Just three kilometers from the rural center, along the winding road that leads to Riofabar, we discover two excellent places to rest: the La Pesanca recreational area and the Miera Arboretum, located on the banks of the Infierno river. Without a doubt, an excursion to do with the little ones of the house.

Route Tielve-Sotres

Cabrales, Picos de Europa.
From Arenas de Cabrales we link with the AS-264 towards Poncebos, continue for 5 kms. to get to Tielve.
Cheese remains the epicenter of the activity. Cabrales de Tielve is one of the tastiest in the area, with centuries of tradition and a good number of national and international awards. Located about 700 meters above sea level and inhabited by less than a hundred people. A mountain village with stone houses, with the Church of San Cristobal presiding over a square where there is no lack of such characteristic elements as the laundry room or the bowling alley.

If we follow the winding road we arrive at Sotres, the highest town in the Asturian geography, after 11 kilometers from Poncebos.
Nucleus in a certain urbanized level, where farmers, adventurers and entrepreneurs coexist. There is a high level of hospitality, mountain guides, and a high quality of artisan products, authentic jewels of tradition, both in food (sausages, meats, cheeses) and in prized objects of folk art that springs up between mountains. There are also no Cabrales cheese makers.

Through the ports of Marabio crossed an old royal road, which served as a route in Jacobean pilgrimages: the French road, which departing from Oviedo ascended to the ports from Sograndio to then connect with the Roman road of La Mesa and cross the mountain range through the port of the same name, in Somiedo.
