Asturias – 27 June to 2 July 2015
Tuesday 30 June 2015
Some of our Senior girls arrived in Asturias on Saturday 27 June 2015 with Mr O’Reilly and Mrs Twaites, where they spent the next 6 days.
They have visited Cangas, a picturesque town set in a deep valley, between the rivers of Sella and Guena, and Covadonga, offering breath-taking views to the famous Picos de Europa and famous lakes, including the beautiful Lago Enol.
On Monday visited the Sanctuary of Covadonga, which has a basilica, mythical grotto, and museum. The girls also impressed the local residents by winning a game of Bowls against the local Asturias team!
Further on during their stay, they interviewed local residents and the residents of the Residencia de Anciones (Retirement home), to practice their Spanish and learn more about the local area and culture.
Here are some photographs of their visit:
