Discover Oviedo and surroundings by car
Whether you want to explore the stunning Cantabrian Mountains or head to the Bay of Biscay, you can do so in style when you pick up a car rental from Oviedo Airport. As the capital of Asturias, there are plenty of things to see and do in Oviedo with the medieval old town being a particular highlight thanks to its cobbled streets and historic buildings including the towering cathedral.
Other top attractions within Oviedo itself also include the Campoamor Theatre – just outside the fascinating Old Quarter – as well as the San Pelayo Monastery, the Town Hall, the picturesque Church of San Isidoro, the Junta General del Principado (parliament building), the church of Santa Maria la Real de la Corte and a selection of former manor houses which are pleasing on the eye.
If you want to venture further afield, Oviedo is well-placed for a road trip with the industrial port city of Bilbao to the east and the Spanish capital of Madrid to the south-south east. You could even cross the border into Portugal where you will find popular cities such as Porto and Braga.
Driving in Oviedo
When driving in Spain, stay on the right hand side of the road unless you are overtaking and take extra care when navigating unfamiliar routes. If you venture into the mountains, beware of hairpin bends and steep inclines as well as oncoming traffic when touring narrow roads. Also, please note that snow can fall anywhere from October through to April making the higher mountain ranges more difficult to access without chains.
Throughout Spain and the Asturias region, roads tend to be well-maintained and signposted. Always follow local signage and never break the speed limit as Spanish police are cracking down on offenders. Driving under the influence of drink or drugs is strictly forbidden.
On and off-street parking is available in Oviedo and beyond. This is usually chargeable and you can purchase tickets at various coin-operated machines.
