Nice, relaxing old town.
Oct 2019
Nice old area, needs a bit of Facade work to get it up to snuff but very relaxing and not nearly as crowded as so many other cascos historicos are these days

Great stroll
Aug 2019
Up for a stroll? Oviedo and the old part of town offers a nice stroll. It seems that the city was made for this. Not many people although busy it never feels over crowded, niace walking surface and a variety of old and newer building to please the eye. Many small shops and places to sit and enjoy a drink. it seems that everything in Oviedo is just a step away.

TOURISM HAS NOT YET INVADED

I liked this old town. A far cry from the touristy invaded cities of Europe. Lively cathedral, great squares and plazas. A walking paradise. I recommend this town to all lovers of strolling interesting cities with little traffic.

Nice for strolling
May 2018 • Couples
Although not rich in spectacular buildings (maybe apart from the cathedral), the old town of Oviedo is very nice are for walks, you can sit for a coffee or a meal, shop for some local cheese at the mercado El Fontan, follow the intriguing sculptures. We liked it very much.

Sleepy town
Sep 2018 • Solo
Still a very sleepy town, light years away from modern developments. Wonder if they will ever catch up with progress. Most people will find it charming as long as they don't have to live over there.

Oviedo keeps a lot of old stone buildings in its central area. You will find interesting churches, statues and chapels.

Casco Antiguo Oviedo
Apr 2018 • Friends
Oviedo is one of the most elegant and beautiful cities in Europe. Oviedo is the cleanest city in Europe. The old Town or Casco Antiguo is really beautiful and full of historical buildings the reflect the rich history of this corner of Northern Spain.

Beautiful old town in a compact walkable format
Mar 2018 • Solo
The old part contains some fine buildings, like the administrative offices houses in beaautiful ancient buildings around the Plaza Porlier, in front of teh Cathedral, and the Ayuntamiento. Most of tehse are religious in nature, but not all are.

Small but great

Right in the center of the city you will find this area with a lot of old buildings to visit. It is a comfortable walk around, it is not to big.
