Oviedo

Sunday Mail - Travel/Escape - - FRONT PAGE -

Oviedo is one of the few small parts of Spain that was not in­vaded by the Moors and the essence of its me­dieval foun­da­tions is in­tact.

More than 80 per cent of the town is ve­hi­cle-free so it’s a per­fect place to walk around and ad­mire the unique ar­chi­tec­ture.

There are more than 150 open-air sculp­tures dot­ted about Oviedo, from a row of naked men to a de­mure and well- clothed Ana the hero­ine of the novel La Re­genta in Plaza Al­fonso II.
