Route through spain by train
– In many cities parking areas are paid, sometimes it is better to leave the car at the edge of the historic areas in towns and cities, and continue walking to avoid parking difficulties, and higher cost.

Touring Spain in 25 days
NOTE 2: In each section I explain a little about each place. In some of them you will find links to articles dedicated to some of the places I talk about in the route. I also include links to find accommodation in each area.
With that margin of time you should plan well the route and decide which places will be visited and which will be sacrificed (keep in mind that any of the four could perfectly need a week to visit them in isolation).
If you want to focus on the Principality, you can look at this article with the route along the coast of Asturias or this one with the most beautiful villages of Asturias that I have ). The places close to the main road are:
Being 3 or 4 weeks in a row visiting everything that each province offers can be very tiring, so my advice is to select places of each section, those that are most attractive to each one, so that you can get the most out of what each province offers.
On such a long route it is difficult to give advice on accommodation. What I am going to do is to put direct links to the accommodation options available through the Booking website in each Autonomous Community.
