The kitchen of paradise
The gastronomy of the Parador de Cangas bears the Asturian stamp and is characterised by the quality of the produce and the nods to monastic cuisine. With a larder stocked with paradise food, you can try tasty pulses such as verdinas and fabes (beans), a wide range of cheeses, tender Asturian veal or fish from the nearby caves of Ribadesella or Llanes.
a sanctuary of Asturian cuisine
In the bright dining hall you will be able to enjoy specialities, paired with the best ciders, such as line-caught hake with clams in a mild cider marinade, bean stew with its compango (sausages) and caramelised rice pudding. We have another gastronomic space, the monastic and monumental Chapel of San Miguel and Pozo del Monasterio. Besides, the Cheese Bar offers a selection of Asturian cheeses and Asturian gastronomy ideal for sharing.

The Gateway to the Picos de Europa
The monastery of San Pedro de Villanueva was originally built in the mid 8th c., by order of Alfonso I, the third king of Asturias, in memory of his predecessor, Favila, son of Don Pelayo, and soon became home to the first royal pantheons of the kings of Asturias.
The building has been a National Monument since 1907 due to its cultural importance and imposing architecture. The monastery conserves the traces of over 1200 years of history to form a site of incalculable value in combination with the nearby 8th c. Romanesque church.
