Social Programme:

14th March: Walking tour around Oviedo city centre and old quarter.

On 14th March, after the sessions end, delegates can visit Oviedo city centre and old quarter on a free-of-charge guided tour. The early nineteenth-century city centre is full of iconic locations, while the more medieval old town is well kept. The Cathedral displays an array of architectural styles, from Pre-Romanesque to Baroque. Two tours are provided, one in Spanish and another in English. Those interested must e-mail the organizers on or before 3rd March.

15th March: Conference dinner.

Delegates can opt for participation in the Conference dinner, to be held on 15th March. It will be a traditional Asturian “espicha” in a local restaurant. It is a festive, informal gathering where natural apple cider is served, as well as wine and other non-alcoholic drinks. Not set in courses, it includes a wide range of local dishes to choose from, such as cider chorizo, serrano ham,  boiled ham, a cheese selection, hard-boiled eggs with salt and paprika, Spanish omelette, a selection of pies, battered cod, and more. Those who did not pay upon registration (30€) and are still interested must e-mail the organizers on or before 2nd March.
