The city will also be a more than pleasant adventure with your pet. Above all because in Asturias cities are designed to enjoy the nature that surrounds them. Designed for walking or cycling. Designed to walk by the sea or through the marina - in the case of Gijón -, or to enjoy the surroundings of the estuary - in the case of Avilés -, where you can also visit the Ferrera Park. Or to walk through parks and gardens, such as Campo de San Francisco, as it happens in Oviedo.
And obviously you can also get lost with your pet in the historic centers, or in any pleasant corner of the many that these cities offer, ideal for their size and their lifestyle so that your little animal can enjoy at ease.
