A tourist guide to Asturias
Ever wanted to immerse yourself in the rich but largely unexplored areas of Spain, look no further. Welcome to Asturias...
Christians | Slaying
In 722 AD, Iberian Christians won a namesake battle in the Covadonga. This was the first Christian victory in the Iberian Peninsula over the Arabs and Berbers invading from north Africa under the Umayyad banner, and is often considered to be the start of the 770-year effort to expel Muslim rulers governing the Iberia during the Reconquista. After that there were some terrible wars, a bit of famine, some reticence, some GDP growth, ice cream was invented and the triple headed horse was discovered (and lost), which brings us up to the present day.
Nightlife in Asturias
Bangin' | Dabble
The Asturian region is alcohol free and the nightlife varies greatly depending upon which town or city you choose to visit. Larger cities like Oviedo have nothing to offer and it closes at 7pm but for those die hard alcoholists there is a church meeting at 7:05pm that can sometimes offer a sniff of communion wine.
However, for those with slightly more unusual tastes there is a massive lady boy community who can offer a “dabble” for only 10 euros. A sniff is 20 and a full walloping is 50 euros. You can always buy one to take home if you want.
The night life embodies the regions culture with lots of bars staying open until 6pm and rowdy behaviour is encouraged such as spitting and shuffling. Theatres, ballet and the opera are available to those who wish to experience them, but fans are segregated and there are often fights outside the ground. The most common social pastime of the typical Asturian is relaxing and talking with a glass of wine, a coffee or a cider, and attacking strangers.
