The landscape of Asturias
The Principality of Asturias lies in the northeast of Spain. The coast bathes in the Cantabrian sea and the region is home to the highest parts of the Cantabrian mountain range.
It is bordered by the Cantabrian sea in the north, Galicia in the west, Cantabria in the east, and Castile and Leon in the south. The mountainous terrain of Asturias can be clearly divided into two parts. On the one hand there is the coast, with its sheer cliff faces that protect the beautiful beaches. On the other hand there is the Cantabrian mountain range that forms a natural border between Asturias and Castile and Leon. The highest peaks can be found in the Picos de Europa, and reach up to 2,648 metres. Some of the summits are well known and include Torre Cerredo, Peña Santa and Naranjo de Bulnes. Other notable peaks are Peña Rubia and Peña Ubiña (2,617 m). The rivers are short, but contain copious amounts of water, due to the heavy rainfall, and the waters that come from the melting of snow in the peaks. The most notable rivers are the Deva, the Sella, the Nalon, the Navia and the Eo (the last two are only partially in Asturias
America Day in Asturias

As part of the San Mateo fiestas in Oviedo, the America day in Asturias parade is held
This major cavalcade started as a tribute to the many Asturians who emigrated to America and would come back to Asturias in summer. Close to 2,000 people take part in this colourful parade with floats, folk groups and bands, with representation from Latin American countries, some countries in Europe, and from towns and villages in the region. Diplomats, politicians and personalities habitually attend the festivities, which get underway with the traditional parade of “haigas”, the old name for the huge American cars that emigrants brought back with them.
 
Asturias
Pastry Festival
On Easter Sunday and Monday, the people of Avilés celebrate with the Fiesta del Bollo (Pastry Festival). Originally set up with the intention of putting an end to the bitter rivalries between the local religious guilds at Easter, the gastronomic event has now been going strong for over 100 years.
Today, festivities highlight a common ground for all to share. The theme is Asturian folklore, featuring regional dress, music and cuisine. There are cultural events and processions throughout Holy Week, but on Easter Sunday it is customary to wash down a traditional Asturian iced bun with a half bottle of white wine. These are on sale from kiosks in the centre.
On the Monday there is a feast in the streets of the central part of the city. Tables and chairs are set up and families bring along Asturian dishes. You can also buy food from the local bars and restaurants. Get there early because there will be at least another 13,000 people with the same idea
