Description


MONASTERY OF SAN PEDRO DE VILLANUEVA (12th CENTURY TO 18th CENTURY)

Parador de Cangas de Onis Tradition has it that King Alfonso I `The Catholic` constructed this building on 21 February 746, and the excavations carried out at the start of the refurbishing work to turn it into a Parador de Turismo confirm this idea. The current monastery was founded on this site and run by the Order of San Benito until the Desamortización de 1835 (Large-scale selling of State and Church assets).Two rooms with archeological remains, pottery in particular, uncovered during the refurbishing work are testament to this distant past. The monastery was recognized a National Monument in 1907, and features an added wing of perfectly harmonious architectural and constructional qualities: truly a jewel set on the green banks of the River Sella, in whose waters the hotel is reflected. In the background, guests can contemplate the majestic landscape of the Picos de Europa. This Parador, featuring comfortable and modern facilities, is the ideal starting point from which to discover the delights of the Asturian landscape, enjoy its typical festivals and ancestral folklore activities and sample the best and most authentic of its rich gastronomic tradition.
