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.

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....

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!

The City of Oviedo has more than 100 sculptures on its streets and this makes the city very interesting. I enoyed seeing the sculpture of Woody Allen. I also liked the Botero sculpture at the Plaza de la Escandelera.

These statues are dotted around the city making for some added interest on a stroll through this surprisingly friendly and cultural place. Take your time to have a proper look.

Whimsical interesting sculptures are everywhere in Oviedo. Walk around and get ready to be delighted. Any guide or map to the city provides exact locations. There's even one of Woody Allen, who is fondly remembered for filming scenes from one of his more recent movies here.

It is fun to walk around Oviedo and "meet"so many characters, from Woody Allen to La Regenta to the humble maid.
