5 rainy day options
If you are wondering what to do on a rainy day in Asturias, here is a list of our favorite rainy day options.
Clock Museum - La Casa del Tiempo, Infiesto
Infiesto is a small town, however, it is the proud host of a fascinating clock museum. The museum houses some fine examples of clocks and watches through the ages, some dating back hundreds of years. This is Infiesto´s hidden gem and well worth a visit, if only to bump into the very enthusiastic Pedro, who runs it.
Jurassic Museum - Museo del Jurásico de Asturias, Colunga
Known as the MUJA, this museum sits near the beach “Playa de La Griega”, home of fossilised dinosaur footprints. There is a good exposition that demonstrates the rich Jurassic history in Asturias. This is a great museum, which is not just for kids.
Cider Brewery Tour - Sidra Cortina Bodega-Llagar, Villaviciosa
Sidra Cortina brewery is just 30 minutes from el gran sueño and offers 45 minute guided visits for just 2€!
