THE COUNCIL AND TOWN OF LAS REGUERAS
The Council of Las Regueras is part of the Camin Real de la Mesa (Royal route of the table). This route is Pre-Romanic in origin and up to 19th century, it was one of the busiest routes between Asturias and the central plains of Spain. You can still find the original Roman Pavements as the route winds its way through hills, meadows and along the River Nalon.
The most important monument visit in Las Regueras is the Roman thermal baths of Valduno just beside the parish church.
Las Regueras offer amazing landscapes, forests and towns with very nice Routes to walk like the Lanceros Route, The Palaces Route or the Piedrafita Route. At the border of Candamo and Las Regueras, amidst the mountains of El Pedrosu and Bufaran, you will find the old fortifications and bunkers left behind after Spanish Civil War.
Las Regueras is also a part of the “Primitive Route“ of the “Route of Santiago” which starts in Oviedo and passes through many towns of the area taking in amazing landscapes and making this a very peaceful and beautiful part of the walk. Here you can find two pilgrim refuges, The Escamplero and The Portalada.
The Gastronomy of Las Regueras is of classical Asturian fare, enjoying very nice seasonal vegetables, stews, Asturian reared beef and nice fish from the Rivers or Sea and nice desserts.
