The weather in Oviedo is a definite draw for visitors, with mildly warm summers that offer relief from the heat of other Spanish cities. The high temperatures during the summer months are rarely above the low 70-degrees Fahrenheit range, though low temperatures during the winters can drop into the low 40s. Dress should be moderately light, with windbreakers or light jackets worn between April and October, and slightly heavier jackets during the winter months. Rainwear is appropriate between October and May, as rain occurs frequently during this period.
Oviedo is a city of churches, containing beautiful examples of Spanish architecture through the centuries that will be appreciated by anyone with an interest in history or architecture. Built in 842 by King Ramiro I, the San Miguel di Lillo is a beautiful Pre-Romanesque building at the Unesco Patrimony of Humanity site. It's a well-preserved example of the period, along with the Santa Maria del Naranco Hall, which was built during the 9th century as part of the city's palace complex. The Cathedral of San Salvador is a bit more modern, built in the 13th century in the city center. It includes several architectural styles, from Pre-Romanesque to Baroque. If sight-seeing isn't enough encouragement to book cheap flights to Oviedo on Orbitz.com, consider the relaxing beaches, such as the Playa de Ballota. As an alternative, the bars in the city are always enjoyable attractions, especially the Baobob in the heart of the city.
