Next to the capital of the Principality of Asturias, just 20 minutes from the centre of Oviedo, we find the picturesque valley of the river Nalón, which is home to one of the largest concentrations of prehistoric caves in southern Europe, some of them with important examples of rock art that can be visited. A visit to the Oviedo Museum of Archaeology is an essential preface.
