Throughout the city one comes across numerous works of sculpture, and they contribute to enlivening one's experience of public spaces. Often humorous or whimsical, they invite us to lighten up, focus less on ourselves, and make an effort to recraft the street as more than shopping or getting from A to B. Botero's giant buttocks and legs seems to generate... More

I particularly like the sculptures in the Campo San Francisco, 3 are dedicated to maternity, with very different styles. Going to find all the sculptures is like a treasure hunt. Lovely pictures to make, whatever the weather will be like. And even at night, some get quite impressive. You'll love the ones near El Fontán, the ones near Transcorrales...The one... More

In Oviedo you will find statues everywhere, on squares, on street corners, in the streets and in the parks.

The city centre of Oviedo is peppered with life-size statues of famous local people or people in typical local dress. There is even a delightful statue of a stray dog that people used to feed and keep an eye on. It certainly given extra life to the streets, something for children to play with and an ideal opportunity for unusual... More

I've rarely seen so much street art in such a small city as Oviedo. And of such variety and quality. There are the expected statues of various historical worthies, some of which are very good, and then there are seemingly a lot more sculptures scattered around the pedestrian areas (which are extensive) and these are more than not, really interesting....

Oviedo is known for its status. They are everywhere, and after that Woody Allen said, Oviedo was his favorite Spanish city, they made a full size bronze of him.

Navigating the city sculpture by sculpture turned out to be a great way to look around! It is particularly good that most of them have plaques that give credit to the artists as we aren't great at this at home!
