La Ponte-Ecomuséu (English)

ECOMUSEUM

Asturias is a region in the north of Spain. La Ponte–Ecomuséu is located in a village called Villanueva, in Santo Adriano, a county which, together with Quirós and Teverga, is part of Los Valles del Oso (Bear Valleys).

There is a 40-kilometre path going along the valley, called La Senda del Oso (the Bear Path), which can be toured walking or cycling. The path is divided in short stages between villages, it presents little difficulty and it is a must for all visitors in the centre of Asturias.


20 kms from the Asturian capital city, Oviedo, and 40 minutes from amazing beaches and rough cliffs, time seems to have stopped in Los Valles del Oso (Bear Valleys): nature (native chestnut, oak and hazelnut forests), high mountains, wild animals and a cultural heritage of the highest value.
