In the place where the king Don Pelayo began the Reconquest, Covadonga, one of the most important touristic spots of the Principado de Asturias is found. If you travel during September, you will be able to enjoy the most important traditional celebration of the village, the Fiesta de la Santina. The typical dishes you should eat in Covadonga are made with products of great quality, that come from the seas and the eart. Fish such as the salmon, the hake, the trout and the monkfish are the protagonists in the tables from Asturias (they all have I.G.P.). The cabritu (kid) and another meats such as the deer, the wild boar and the roe deer are also very popular. These are just some of the options you can try along with the wines of the region.
Cheese is also very important in the tradition from Asturias. Enjoy the flavor of their cider and visit the taberns of this village located in the National Park of the Picos de Europa. But don’t forget to leave some space for the dessert, as sweets are a mandatory product from this place. Try the casadielles: empanadas stuffed with walnuts and almonds and covered with a bit of anise.
