Grau/Grado can certainly be proud of its magnificent Sunday market, a small version of which is also held on Wednesdays. Grau/Grado has an important number of buildings of great historical interest, for example, the Nuestra Señora de los Dolores Chapel, the San Pedro Parish Church, the Medieval Wall, the Peñaflor Medieval Bridge and the Nuestra Señora del Fresno Sanctuary. The council, which is large and with numerous significant villages and hamlets, has various routes to discover it, such as the Conde de Coalla Route, the abandoned villages route, the spelt flour route and the Cubia River route.

In the neighbouring area of Candamo, a must-see is the Cueva de la Peña, a cave offering incredible cave paintings. It is only open during specific times of the year, therefore, if it is closed, it is worth visiting the Cave Art Interpretation Centre in San Román. One of its most popular festivals is the strawberry festival.
Its relevant routes include the "Historic site in front of the Nalón River", with numerous well-preserved trenches and buildings constructed by the Republican Army during the Civil War.

For those that choose to visit Yernes y Tameza, they should look out for the many hórreos and paneras in Yernes, some of which are really quite old. From Yernes, there is a climb to the Cuevallagar pass, a spectacular place and just as beautiful as the cave with the same name, where, during the summer months, cattle seek shelter from the heat. From here, visitors can also access the Aula Vital, a multifunctional refuge, based on self-organisation and survival, located in the Tameza mountains.
