"A spectacular site to visit "

Known as a Catholic sanctuary, Santa Cueva de Covadonga is a collection of caves in the mountains. It is indeed a picturesque pilgrimage destination. We loved visiting the chapel inside the cave overlooking the lake. The air is so clean and the place looks culturally rich too. Highly recommend a visit here.

Santa Cueva de Covadonga

The Santa Cueva de Covadonga is a Catholic sanctuary located in Asturias, northern Spain. It is a cave in the Picos de Europa mountains, which gives its name to the parish of Covadonga in the municipality of Cangas de Onís. The meaning of the name "Covadonga" likely derives from the Visigothic/Old Germanic "Cofa Weorðunga", meaning "Cave of Worship", and refers to its shrine dedicated to the worship of the Virgin of Covadonga.
