Cangas de Onís, a charming municipality nestled in the heart of the Picos de Europa mountains, was the first capital of the Kingdom of Asturias, where King Pelayo fought against the Moors in the 8th century.

Today it is a small city whose landmark is Roman bridge over the River Sella.

The so-called “Roman bridge” is actually a medieval construction, with a design that reflects the transition from Romanesque to Gothic, at the end of the 13th century.

Tasting cider

Cider is the most typical product in the area, and we had to taste it. The general opinion was a smile about the funny technique to serve, but a doubt about is good taste.

That was the only reserve – the food was tasty, well presented and served. A small confusion replaced the salad that I ordered by another one, with small squids, absolutely delicious.

Strong but good

The planned restaurant was closed, so we had to choose locally. This restaurant, facing the church, was a good solution.

We tasted a variety of beans that we didn’t know- “verdines” well cooked with seafood.

It was good, but, dinning late as the Spanish use to do, and going to bed right immediately, meant a small difficulty in digestion. Not serious…
