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:

The Miners’ Strike of 1934
In 1933, Conservatives swept to power in national elections, freaking out the leftist parties: the Socialists, Communists, Anarchists and the labor unions. In response, a general strike was called across the country. Though it failed miserably in most of Spain due to poor organization and decisive police action against leaders, Asturians were determined to see it through. Workers from mining towns banded together and marched on Oviedo. They encountered little resistance, and captured almost all of Asturias in a short time.

El Cristo – Oviedo from Above
We ascended into El Cristo, a hundred meters above the historic center, to check out the neighborhood. It’s a lively area full of students and residents, and interesting both for the crazy university architecture and the views over the valley.

Restaurante La Más Barata
We were excited to check it out, mostly because its name translates as “The Cheapest”, and we’re eternally on a budget. But the name turned out to be a bit of a misnomer; La Más Barata wasn’t anywhere close to the most barata meal we’ve had in Oviedo. But it’s not crazy expensive, either, and we had a good experience.
