About Asturias
Mostrar índice

The Principality of Asturias is 10.600 km2 in size and is situated on the North Iberian Peninsula. The steep relief of the Cantabrian Mountains mark the southern limits in a region whose mountain range is close to the coast (especially in the Eastern zone). This determines the geological morphology of the rivers in Asturias: short, fast and in abundant flow, fed by rainfall patterns corresponding to the region‘s wet weather: rainfall is plentiful, temperatures mild and of reduced thermal amplitude.

Territrial Regulation

According to the Asturian Statute of Autonomy, with administrative purpose, the community is divided into 78 councils, a provision that currently has the same legal value as the municipality. The entity smaller than the council is the Parish Council, which does not necessarily suggest an ecclesiastical parish. Different neighbourhoods are present within each respective parish.
