From 91 Days in Oviedo
Oviedo is the capital of Asturias, the lushly green northern province of Spain. An ancient, noble city surrounded by unbelievable nature, Oviedo provided a wonderful base for three months of hiking, sight-seeing and culture. This was our first location in our 91 day travel project, and we couldn’t have picked a better place to start. Bebin reading from the beginning of our journey, or skip to the end. Visit the comprehensive index of everything we wrote about, or just check out a few posts, selected at random, below:

Famous Ovetenses: Princess Letizia of Spain
That’s right! Letizia’s just peeps like you and me. Before her fairytale engagement and marriage to Felipe, she was a heavyweight journalist, who reported live from places like Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks, and became the anchor of Spain’s most watched news program. Her tough journalistic chops won the Prince’s heart. Well that, and that she’s freaking hot. That probably played a part, too.

Pizzería La Competencia on the Ruta del Vino
It works for Pizzería La Competencia, on Calle de Manuel Pedregal, a street otherwise known as Oviedo’s “Wine Route”. I couldn’t believe my ears when the waitress said “€2.20″, after setting down two large glasses of wine and two pieces of pizza. Just to make sure, we ordered another round. Yep, that was the price!

To the Top of Mount Naranco!
And so we did. Starting from San Miguel de Lillo, a path winds up the mountain, through a forest and finishes at the top. It’s all uphill, but the path zigzags and isn’t too difficult. Unless, of course, you’re like us: stupid.
