Phase 6: (from Salamanca) to Oviedo

All other things but the city.

sunny 18 °C

Oviedo as a stop came up after a few planning changes and basically because of distance again.
To get closer to the sea and the Northern coast of Spain.

I can be very short about the city. Not much to see.
Being Sankta Semana - of course the procession...

However, it had to my taste the best tapa/pincho bar during the whole trip.
"Jamon", at 60m of the hotel was always full of people. Inside and outside.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner.
I was lucky to get a bar stool during afternoon and just lingered at the bar.
The bar owners offered constantly little tasting snacks.
Any type of person, young and old, walked in and out of the place.
Had a few glasses of wine and rum - just watching and letting Spanish time tick away.

Some may see that the picture is a bit blurry but that is purely because that day the lens was bit dirty....

The road to Oviedo was also a very pleasant drive.
Leaving the plains of Spain and into the mountain area gave yet again another face of Spain.
When crossing into Asturias, there were some stunning views;

But also the weather changed a bit - lucky it was at that time only fog and not rains as one should expect in this part of the country...

This is it.
Only a short drive and short stay.
Next - San Sebastian.
