Round trip from Oviedo
RP 19 Rio Nalon
Starting and ending on the outskirts of the popular city of Oviedo, this route is soon into the countryside of the region of Asturias. Some of the roads are small and very rural, they are all surfaced but by using these, you will see some beautiful scenery. The roads are all surfaced but some run close to farms so beware of mud and poo.
The scenery becomes more dramatic as you approach Las Ubinas la Mesa Natural park and start to climb higher. There are some good opportunities for photo's along most of this route but the most spectacular will be within the park.
I have suggested a lunch stop at RP 12, San Martin, here you will find a good selection of restaurants.

After lunch the route continues to twist and turn passing through small villages, gorges and several strange looking barns, built in wood or stone, raised from the ground by pillars, with a stone between barn and pillar. These are in fact, grain stores known as hórreo and are built this way to prevent attack by vermin.
RP 17 is a bridge over the Rio Narcea which is the feed river for several reservoirs in this area and used for producing hydo electricity. The route follows the Barca Reservoir and Rio Narcea for several kilometers as it meanders along the valley.
A little challenging in places but the rewards of the scenery and twisty roads make it worth it.
I have awarded 4 stars**** for this route. The roads and scenery are very good and the attractions are good.
