Tazones, Villaviciosa

4.2
#2 of 7 in Things to do in Villaviciosa
Soak up the atmosphere of the charming fishing village of Tazones. As you wander its colorful streets, look for the shell-covered house and historic lighthouse. Play archeologist as you search for the genuine dinosaur footprints in the quarry near the beach. Fossils are not the only reason Tazones' beach is historically significant. King Charles V is said to have stepped on Spanish soil for the first time here when acquiring his new kingdom in 1517. Sample the catch of the day and sip some of the local cider in one of Tazones' many seafood restaurants.

    It is a beautiful picturesque village, but is very little and neither has much to do. There are two or three souvenir shops and little else. The beach is also very tiny, but it is OK to visit him.

  • A very tourist and place worth seeing, although a hand of paint would not come you not bad, the poor state of the same lackluster the tourist attraction of the enclave. City Council and businesses in the area (restaurants) should bet more on that aspect, the site is worth it.
