Some children have specific programs for children. Thus, the Botanical Garden, the Jurassic Museum or the Park of Prehistory, have workshops or activities for children at certain times.

· The Botanic Garden of Gijón

Visiting the Botanic Atlantic Garden of Gijon is always a unique experience, an excursion to an earthy paradise created by the hands of humans.

It is a living space, probably the most natural in this city that occupies 15 hectares of ground. It has been designed as a big exhibitor and it is in fact, a green microcosm in itself, in which we find more than 15000 plants and trees.
There is nothing similar in our Peninsula,
as regards its dimension and beauty. The whole visit around this exhibition site may take us four hours to complete it all.

Children can enjoy a wide range of workshops in all seasons

· The Jurassic Museum of Asturias

The Jurassic Museum of Asturias (MUJA) is located in Rasa de San Telmo, in the municipality of Colunga, near the AS-257 road at Lastres.
Its original architecture in the shape of a dinosaur's footprint make it an attractive place to visit. Along the high corridors, one can take a look at more than twenty replicas of what roamed Earth before humans did. The central scene shows a couple of Tyrannosaurus Rex copulating. They are over 12 meters high and if they were real their weight would go beyond more than 10 tons.
All over the year they organized workshops for children.

The Prehistoric Park in Teverga houses the most relevant collection of Cave Art in Europe and it has between 10.000 and 40.000 years of antiquity. When visiting it, we can enjoy a wiser view about the Palaeolithic. It is placed only at 40 kilometers from the city of Oviedo, in the locality of San Salvador of Alesga (Teverga).

The location of this park is in a valley of great ecological value and surrounded by a natural wonderful landscape far from human settlements. This museum is under the ground, in this way we get closer to daily life of cave men. There are 25 virginias down Peña Sobia, just in the middle of the Natural Park of the Ubiñas.

· The bear path

The best option to find brown bears in Asturias, is going through the most green walked path of Asturias.

The bear path, in the present day, it is the ideal route for walking lovers and cyclists. Its ethnographic and natural richness is characterized by old tunnels and bridges. It is an asphalted road, with a protective fence, fountains and signs which inform us about the local flora, fauna, monuments, alternative routes and useful advices. There are also numerous recreational areas to enjoy our meals.

But probably the most interesting attraction of this route is to have the chance of observing the two asturian bears: "Paca" and "Tola" which live on a fenced mount.

Tuñón - Proaza: 6 kms.
Proaza - Valdemurio: 8 kms.
Proza - Entrago: 14 kms.

If we do this route by bicycle We may take into account the existence of unevenness between the starting point and the end (145m and 450 m. respectively). It is a wonderful route for cyclists of all levels. The time spent on this route will be around three hours. Rental bikes more information Deporventura
