Cangas' parador (luxurious state-owned hotel) overlooks the Río Sella, 3km northwest of town. The main building, with 11 gorgeously characterful rooms, was originally a monastery, built between the 12th and 18th centuries on the site of early Asturian king Favila's palace. Rooms have a comfortable, classical style; some are former monks' cells (though suitably upgraded!). There's a smart on-site restaurant.

Even if you don't stay here, the parador makes for a fascinating (free) visit. The adjoining 12th- to 13th-century monastery church, the Iglesia de San Pedro de Villanueva, is embellished with unusual medieval carvings depicting various sins and the story of Favila's death in a fight with a bear.
