Possibly at the turismo desk? The Guardia Civil? Why not wait until you get to Oviedo? There is a special sello from the Camera Santa at the Cathedral.

There is a special place for the first stamp. If you are keen to get one at the airport then ask them not to use the spot for the first one and instead get that at the Cathedral as suggested above.

Because I do not go to downtown, I start Camino del Norte immediately from airport. But thank you for reply, I will try to contact Information desk :)

Unless you want to get your first sello at the point where you start walking (and some pilgrims will), and depending on your route, I would rather pick one up at the ayuntamiento in San Juan de Arena, or if going by Soto del Barco, the hotel at Palacio de Magdalena (the old summer residence of the bishops of Oviedo, from the days when bishops had summer palaces) has a splendid sello. If the airport turismo has none, the pilgrim has recourse to bars and cafés for sellos--- Spain is a land of sellos. I have several guardia civil sellos and a military sello as well as one from a hospital where I took a suddenly ill pilgrim.

Another possibility (you can put this in the unasked advice category) is that church-going pilgrims will often have their first sello from their home parish.

That's a nice idea if you want to save that first bigger box for a special stamp, or if you want to get that spot stamped by your church at home, but it isn't necessary to put any stamp (or any particular stamp) in that space.

In other words, don't worry about the placement of the stamps.
