Tourist routes in Asturias

Asturias, with around ten thousand square kilometers of surface, occupies only 2,2% of the total area of ​​our country. However, if there was a ranking of provinces according to the number of tourist routes, the Principality would undoubtedly occupy a very prominent position. There is hardly a square kilometer that does not have a natural or cultural attraction. A very high density of "things to see" along thousands of "routes" of all kinds.
