The Royal Site of Covadonga combines a prodigious history, spirituality in abundance and a unique nature. Precisely this extraordinary reality was perfectly captured in the Centenaries celebrated in 2018.

In 2018, Asturias commemorated a unique triple anniversary, centred on Cuadonga/Covadonga and its surroundings. It was the historic coincidence of three centenaries simultaneously: the Coronation of the Virgin of Covadonga, the creation of the Covadonga Mountain National Park and the thirteenth centenary of the origins of the Kingdom of Asturias. Three Covadongas in one: the historical, the spiritual and the natural, in an extraordinary conjunction, making Asturias a universal destination.
