Oviedo boasts a range of monuments, which, together with the monuments of the Kingdom of Asturias, are placed on the Unesco World Heritage List.
Throughout the city there are many sights which are worth a visit:
Oviedo has a mild to warm climate. Summers last from June to September when daytime temperatures are usually between 25 and 28 °C and night average between 15 and 17 °C. Winters are from December to February with day still around or slightly above 10 °C and nights around 6 °C. Summers are fairly dry with just around 25mm of rain a month, but from November to February there is about 100-130mm of rain a month.

If you want to post a card, you can head to the post office (Correos). The Spanish post is not yet as efficient as colleagues in other countries so receiving a card can take a bit longer than the number of days that it should take. On the website of Correos, you can find the locations of nearby post offices.
Post offices are generally open from 8:30am to 2:00pm, although times can vary and the main post office usually is open until the early evening. Most will also open again on Saturday mornings, but in the smaller towns will close as early as 12 noon. When posting a letter, look for a yellow box and, if possible, post at the post office itself where there will also be divisions for local, national and international mail. Be prepared for long queues at the post office. This is why tobacco shops sell stamps and many will also have the facility to weigh packages.
Standard letters/postcards of up to 20 grams sent within Spain are €0.34. However, non-standard letters/postcards of up to 20g are €0.39. Letters/postcards of 20 to 50 grams are €0.45. In the case of international shipping, the price is €0.65 to most countries within Europe for standard envelopes (letters/postcards) up to 20g, for a few European countries and outside Europe it is €0.78.
