  • Hidden treasure in the city, with a free admission and a wonderful collection of things to see. It's a must!
  • Oviedo's best kept secret (and it is free)
  • The oldest Museum of Asturias has been able to renew itself and in addition to the exposed funds that are very much worth, they do so it is fun to go with the children. It's worth and is free.
