Old Town

The old town of Oviedo is very pretty. t's full of very colorful houses.

Street market

There's a street market in the old town were they sell mainly clothes. They also sell flowers in the "boulevard de las flores".

Bad weather

The bad thing about Oviedo is that even when it's sunny there's always a thin mist. I wnet on a light aircraft with a friend on a really sunny day and all my pictures are "misty".

    Wonderful photos of Oviedo's old town. I think that flying over Asturias would be breath-taking!

    Nice pictures of the casco antiguo in Oviedo! I miss the flower market... it was always so cheerful! And don't worry about the misty pictures... this is typical for Asturias!
