Whether you’re dreaming of a chic boutique pad or a luxurious heritage hotel, you’ll find that our selection of the best places to stay in Oviedo has it all.

Take a guided city tour or embark upon your own sunlit wanderings to marvel at Oviedo’s imposing architectural legacy. Highlights include the Basilica of San Julián de los Prados and the Cathedral of San Salvador, with its Cámara Santa de Oviedo housing glittering Christian treasures. Don’t miss the beautiful Santa María del Naranco Hall, nor the Monastery of Saint Vincent, which includes the Archaeological Museum of Asturias.

Clamber up the Monte Naranco for panoramic views, picnic in pretty San Francisco Park, or admire artwork at the Museo de Bellas Artes before joining residents for drinks in the Plaza de Fontan.
