One must to visit in Asturias, Covadonga,
situated in the west and north of the Picos de Europa mountain range. Discover
this place in person, photos can not show you the magical atmosphere.
Covadonga is an important location for the people from Asturias, in this place the King Pelayo fighted against the islamic “Moors” in a battle to start the “Reconquista” (reconquest) of Spain. The King Pelayo is a legendary heroe that represents the bravery and the courage of the local people.
The scenery of Covadonga is breathtaking, it is very close to some stunning mountain lakes. There you can visit the religious sanctuary, a mythical grotto, the museum and tomb of Pelayo and the San Fernando Collegiate Church next to the basilica complex.
