Santuario De Covadonga, Cangas de Onis

4.6
A chapel tucked into a cave perched in the Picos de Europa mountain range, is impressive. Asturians speak of the mysticism and the history of Covadonga in the same breath. The Battle of Covadonga began the Christian reconquest of the Iberian peninsula. Here you’ll find the remains of several important and early members of Asturian royalty.

    Amazing place and location. I recommend going in the off-season or during the week. The weekend week is crowded. Numerous traffic jams and little parking. There are 5 car parks in the lower area, before arriving at the sanctuary. If you park here you can upload prior bus ticket to lakes or the basilica. Access to the cave is allowed. Into silence. No photos. The basilica is precious. It is open to the public.

    Majestic at the same time that simple and austere place. Beautiful. Worth visiting as well as essential

    The basilica and the Holy cave are amazing, but the setting is spectacular. If the visit accompanied it by the Lakes it is much more complete
