With a dramatic coastline of nearly 600 beaches, a rolling countryside of deep valleys, and sleepy villages that provide a rustic backdrop, a holiday in Asturias can be as varied as you like. Fiercely proud of its ties to an ancient Celtic culture, the local population considers its part of the country the "real" Spain--this region was the only part of the country never completely conquered by the Moors. In many ways, the modern Spanish state grew right out of this unconquerable land. Today, Asturias possesses a huge number of pre-medieval attractions, many dating as far back as the 7th century. Numerous historical attractions scattered across the region’s rural landscape are World Heritage Sites, well-preserved remnants of Spain’s early Christian heritage.
