Neighbourhoods of Oviedo
Oviedo consists of a number of districts:
- Casco Antiguo: This is the ‘old town’ area of the city where you will find the majority of the historic architecture and traditional character. Every good day of sightseeing should begin in the mostly pedestrianised Casco Antiguo.
- West and North: To the west and north of old town, you start to find busy parks and modern shopping streets filled with cafes, tapas bars and restaurants for all the refreshment that a visitor could possibly need on a day of sightseeing. The best shopping streets are the Calle Uria and Calle de Pelayo, just west of the historic core.
- Periphery: The outskirts of the city centre are where you will find many of the factories that boost the city’s economy. Oviedo is famous for its strong reputation in both textiles and food production.
