4.7/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web

Be sure to wear comfortable hiking shoes and take plenty of water. If you can, build in time to stop at one of the mountain villages and try the local food. A couple local favorites include fabada--sausage and bean casserole--and the pote asturiano, the regional stew.
