Plaza del Fontan, Oviedo

4.5
Plaza del Fontan is a sunny square to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of Oviedo. There aren’t many activities besides people watching here, but you will find a myriad of restaurants. If you get thirsty, be sure to try the cider—a local beverage popular with both residents and tourists. Pay special attention to the way waiters pour the cider, from a distance above their heads, to effortlessly fill your glass. If you’re feeling brave, you can try to pour the beverage just like them.

  • It is a beautiful place and landmark of the city of Oviedo. In the center of the square you have several cider houses, where you can take a fresh cider. Sunday in the square there is market. There are also several shops with typical things to buy. Many days, there are groups of bagpipes and Asturian dances that can be seen acting in the square or in the City Hall that is on the side. It is also the market next door where you can also buy typical products of Asturias.

  • Very nice old square to sit and eat very well in any of its terraces (if it is time for this clear.)

  • Small and flirty plaza. It mounted the flea market on Saturday.

  • In this square I asked my wife to marry me, since it is Asturian and here I spent the hours before my wedding in San Isidoro. A classic that always have to visit and take a few fills. N.B. recently, probably by podemita local governance, have slashed the number of tables for what is difficult to get a site the weekend. That step in Madrid and they happily rectified, time to time...
