Once you have finished with your CELTA and have some spare time to explore, we recommend seeing more of the Asturias region. It's definitely one of Spain's best kept secrets, as it's one of the rare parts of the country that sees more rain. This means that Asturias offers beautiful, green scenery all year round -- perfect if you enjoy the outdoors!
You can visit the beaches in Costa Verde while you are in the region. It's known for having a dramatic coastline -- think rolling hills, hidden coves and rocky cliffs. It's a true spectacle to visit and great for a relaxing day out.
Asturias is known for their speciality foods, which you must try. In Spain, the region is known as ‘El Pais de Queso‘ which in English is "The Land of the Cheese." Whereas Spain produces some fantastic cheeses, it's Asturias that offers over a 100 different types of artisinal cheeses. While you are in the region, you can also visit a local dairy farm and watch process. Along with their cheeses, the region produces their own cider. Unlike Swedish or Irish cider, Asturias' cider is flat and cloudy and not as sweet. Again, you will be able to find a cider tour which is a must.
