The Umbrella Plaza & Mirador del Fito

Read this post on TravelFeed.io for the best experience



I'm still going through all articles of our Oviedo Travel blog to replace the pretty bad looking photos with high-res images and I'm having so much fun with it. Living through our 3 month again through those pictures. I even found some photos for the Umbrella Plaza which I haven't published yet.

The Umbrella Plaza

Our first two months in Asturias were marked by incredibly sunny weather. People kept warning us that this wasn’t normal, and to prepare ourselves for rain in October.

They were right. The entire month of October was grey and rainy. One particularly miserable Saturday night, we got caught in a downpour on our way home from the bars. The streets were full of young party people, and all of them were wielding umbrellas. I found that amusing; it would never occur to me to bring my umbrella clubbing, but such precaution is second-nature to Asturians.

Rain is a part of life here, and the Plaza del Paraguas is a cute wink to Oviedo‘s dreary weather. Found at the end of Calle San Isidro, the “Umbrella Plaza” is popular with the city’s youth as an evening hang-out spot. It was developed in the 1920s as a milk market, and the large concrete umbrella in the center provided cover for the milk ladies.

Mirador del Fito

The road between Colunga and Arriondas winds through the Sueve mountain range. Midway through the drive, is a viewpoint called the Mirador del Fito, which offers an incredible view of the ocean, valleys and the Picos de Europa in the distance.

When we arrived yesterday morning, a heavy fog had enveloped the valley below, and the scene was of breathtaking beauty.
