A classic local market with some touristy bits thrown in - my wife found a haberdashery stall which she browsed and a clothes stall with goods in a heap, where she found something for our daughter. Round the corner were flowers and... More

We went to this plaza and found it interesting with all the stalls selling a wide variety of products. We went in the morning and it was quite crowded.

It is a local market in a nicely recovered historical building, widely visited by Oviedo folk. Architecture apart, it is an Interesting visit to really appreciate the gastronomy of Asturias. You can get excellent cheese, produce, meats, fish, vegetables but since you would be traveling you will find that only a few things are ready to consume. Nonetheless it makes... More

...and find something new! This time it was the day for the flower market, which added a touch of color to the scene. Unfortunately there were too many stalls selling trinkets just around the corner, this took away from the local color.

This 9th C stone fountain is a great example of medieval civil works. Because its so close to where you likely have eaten, you might just pass by and appreciate its survival.

This is a great little square near the market in Oviedo, there are fantastic gourmet food stores all around, and you can see the waiters pouring the famous cider ( sidra ) from a great height into glasses to get it frothy. Even the supermarket here has wonderful products to buy.
