ASTURES, PELAYO NUESTRO REY

10

On this very special year, Asturias will have held the celebrations for the commemoration of three very important historical dates.

“Astures, Pelayo Nuestro Rey”: The first one is the anniversary of 1,300 years of the Battle of Covadonga which marks the origin of the Kingdom of Asturias. The second important event is the centenary of the Coronation of the Virgin of Covadonga and the last one, the centenary of the First Protected Natural Space in Spain known as the National Park of the Picos de Europa which originally was called the Covadonga Mountain National Park.

Este año se celebran los 1.300 años de la Batalla de Covadonga, comienzo de la Reconquista de la Peninsula Ibérica. Cangas de Onís conmemora en el mes de septiembre de cada año este hecho histórico con la fiesta de la “Proclamación de Pelayo” como primer rey astur. ¡Ven a disfrutarlo con nosotros, te esperamos! Cangas de Onís, tu próxima conquista.
