40 years recognizing values

Forty years have passed since the signing of the founding charter of the Princess of Asturias Foundation in Oviedo, northern Spain. In the present times of uncertainty, the commitment assumed by the institution, namely to recognize excellence through the work of men and women who contribute to progress, to the construction of better and more just societies, is today a stronger conviction than ever.

As a symbol of this commitment, the Foundation has been granting the Princess of Asturias Awards since 1981, an exaltation of effort and knowledge, of culture as a driving force of development and an element of social cohesion, in addition to offering a message of hope for the future.
