Yet another of those charming examples of Asturian Romanesque architecture that unite the wonder of its enclave, a secluded valley very close to San Salvador de Valdediós, with the trace of architectural harmony that reaches the bottom of the spirit.

Pre-Romanesque escodido in a village of Villavociosa. It is worth the visit.

Spectacular church, needs to be restored. Very beautiful inside and in a remote place, a crossroads of valleys. There are few places like this

Beautiful Romanesque church located in a small town. In a delicious place. This church is a jewel of the Asturian Romanesque.

Regensburg Sausage Kitchen

The Historic Sausage Kitchen of Regensburg (Wurstküche) is notable as perhaps the oldest continuously open public restaurant in the world. In 1135 a building was erected as the construction office for the Regensburg stone bridge. When the bridge was finished in 1146 AD, the building became a restaurant named Garkueche auf dem Kranchen ("cookshop near the crane") as it was situated near the then river port. Dockers, sailors and the staff of the nearby St. Peter cathedral workshop were the regulars for the centuries to come. The present building at this location dates from the 17th century, but archaeological evidence has confirmed the existence of a previous building from the 12th century with about the same dimensions.

Until ca. AD 1800, the specialty was boiled meat, but when the family who currently own the restaurant took over in 1806, charcoal grilled sausages were introduced as the main dish offered. The kitchen still operates today and serves 6,000 sausages to guests daily.
