Northern Spain possesses a pristine emerald beauty in Asturias, which is located next to Cantabria, as rolling green pastureland is dotted with medieval farmhouses with cosy villas Asturias and quaint fishing villages alongside the sometimes-rugged, always-scenic coastline exquisitely preserve an ageless way of life. Yet overlooking all of this gorgeous scenery are the snow-capped spires of the Picos de Europa, or “Peaks of Europe” mountain range that soar majestically above the landscape. An interesting feature of Asturias’ history and culture is that it evolved differently from the rest of Spain as a result of its isolation. With a strong local dialect, it could even be considered its own country.
