    Gijón: world-renowned gastronomy plus cider

    Tuesday, May 3, 2016
    It is no secret that northern Spain is one of the most world-renowned gastronomic destinations. Gijón, lest we forget, is also the capital of the Costa Verde or "Green Coast", the northern coast of the Iberian Peninsula. Perhaps the proximity of the sea and mountains is the reason that all kinds of high quality produce can be found here in the region of Asturias. These include fish and shellfish, different meats and cheeses, and all kinds of dairy products, legumes, vegetables and fruits. All washed down with Asturias' most popular drink, cider (sidra in Spanish).
