Spain Getaways: Alles, a Picturesque Village In Asturias


Alles is a small village in the northern region of Asturias, one of the most beautiful areas in Spain and its best-kept secret. While most tourists flock down south or fly to the sunny Canary Islands, not many are aware of this striking region.

Asturias will surprise you for sure, specially if you drive from Madrid passing by a flat and brown landscape for hours. You may be thinking you are in Ireland rather than in Spain when you look at the green valleys, prairies, forests and impressive mountains. Alles is one of the many picturesque small villages you will find when visiting this gorgeous land.

With a population of only 159, this tiny village offers the visitor a sample of the traditional architecture spread throughout the region. San Pedro is a charming baroque style church from the XVIII century that stands out from the more austere buildings in the village.

Alles also offers the visitor several hiking routes along the mountains of Sierra del Cuera. This is one of the best ways to enjoy the breathtaking landscape. There are several routes with different levels of difficulty but all of them will take your breath away for sure.
