Located in the Picos de Europa and known in every corner of Spain and the world, it is here in Arenas de Cabrales where the miracle takes place. Cabrales cheese, the blue cheese par excellence and the first to obtain the Protected Designation of Origin, is hidden in the caves of this town. Travel through the magnificent landscapes that the Cares route offers you, and discover the process of making this cheese in its cave-exhibition. Taste it on its own, with cider or as a star ingredient in many recipes with local flavour.
You can also eat in Arenas the delicious Asturian meats that are seasoned with cabrales sauces. Ask for a good baked cabritu in Cabrales or a chuletón de carne roxa. And what about the cachopo! You can enjoy these suggestive dishes at the Cabrales Cheese Gastronomic Days.
But what to eat in Arenas de Cabrales does not end here, as thanks to the proximity of the Cares River you can combine the products of the land and the sea, such as trout or salmon. The classic fabes and the traditional pote complete a wide range of gastronomic possibilities.
Arenas is also famous for the Corri-corri dance that you can witness on St. John’s Day.
