Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Another impressive natural spot in Asturias. The beach is magnificent, with green mountains coming into the sea both sides. It´s a wide beach, completely open, not urbanised, although tides seem to be strong, as well as wind. There´s a big parking lot, so it´s not so remote a place as one might wish, and access is easy through local roads. Stunning place.

    The tour was for free. The establishment has a good history of cider makers. I really like the cider!

    Great place to go with kids. They can see and interact with some farm animals.
    They also show you the basics of cheese making process. Eco friendly and a very cool guide.
    Visit ends with a small tasting of their dairy products and the option to buy them.
    Visit is totally free.

    Kids loved wondering around picking blueberries. At 2 euros for a large tray it was really good value and fun.

    This area (Oviedo in particular) has several excellent examples of pre-romanesque churches built in the 800s by the Asturian kings but this one is in the countryside, a lovely drive from or to Oviedo. It is attached to a monastery (where you can stay or eat). Just go into the reception/gift shop and pay the small fee (1.50 euros a person) and the receptionist will unlock the church, give you some history sheets in the appropriate language and leave you alone for a half hour or so to comtempate the remaining murals (very little) and the lovely space and light in the church. You can take all the photos you want--a plus.

    A simple and peaceful church within and worth looking at if you are walking around the charming old town of Villaviciosa - especially look at the highly decorated main entrance porch with its mixture of sacred and profane carvings. Thirteenth century mixture of gothic and romantic architecture. I liked it. There is a small Spanish leaflet of explanation and I believe there may be a guided tour available at certain times to gain more from visit.

    You have to really like cider to go on a tour of a cider factory, a bit like all the whisky aficionados travelling around the highlands and islands distilleries, but this one's worth it. Villaviciosa is the capital of Spanish sidra, and Casa Cortina, just outside the town on a 20 minute walk, is a good place to see how they make this great drink.

    The tour guide really tried hard to help us out with first giving the descriptions in Spanish, then giving us an English translation. Even though we speak some Spanish, it was kind of her to accommodate us. For only 2 Euros, the tour explains how they used to process the apples, and how they still get deliveries from outside orchards to contribute to the stock.

    Things have changed over the years, with giant chilled metal barrels holding thousands of gallons of cider, which, with your complimentary glass, you learn how to pour the cider the Asturian way.

    We then got a chance to sample the ice cider, which you can by from their store. The ticket you get also buys you a free bottle of cider from the restaurant next door.

    This is an excellent small museum explaining the history of the estuary, its fauna and flora and its current ecological challenges. It is free of charge and has regular and frequent opening hours. Although the panels are all in Spanish there is comprehensive translation available at the desk and the man there was extremely helpful in answering our questions. It is child friendly with lower level panels for the smaller ninos and there was also other tourist information available for the area. A very worthwhile visit.

    this small beach and marina is beautifully situated on the lovely estuary at Villaviciosa and pleasant enough to stroll around for the views but we found it grubby including the beach itself which had horribly polluted water - in which children were swimming unbelievably. There is a small wood in the middle and a cafe below a block of what look like holiday apartments. The area is much used by locals for various boating/kayaking activities and for picnics at the weekend although we much preferred Rodiles beach on the other side of the water.

    The Town Hall is quite nice & 5 mins walk from the primary school in the picture. I have to type a minimum of 100 characters.

    It is a nice beach and my friend who is a local took me there and said it is one of the best beaches close to Gijon, it was around 20 minute drive. It is probably not the best for swimming due to the rocks but it looks pretty cool and you can sunbathe on the big rocks. There were people surfing. Very poetic and natural place but also with some restaurants and bars.

    Cocktails galore - and more importantly a bar with the best ever spirits that you can find globally!
    A wonderful bartender who is truly passionate - slide up to the bar on a day when it’s not too busy and you get an amazing education on any item you want to learn about - the best rums, taquillas , whiskeys and the list goes on. And his wonderful wife shows up with divine bites to keep your tummy going.... the true power couple!
    I love it!
