From folixa en folixa we walk

Asturias is famous for its prao festivals. A whole festive spirit brand of the house. A genuine philosophy that understands celebrations as something to be given equally to everyone, in a communal way, without showing off or prominence, and that should preferably take place in the middle of nature.

The festivities are always accompanied and complemented by the folklore that the Asturians keep as a treasure, as well as by the best products of the land and some good ciders for the occasion.

Asturian festivities are usually concentrated in the summer. During these months there is hardly a day that does not have a popular outdoor celebration. There is no truce. Any excuse is good to get together with family, friends or form large clubs for the occasion. The rest of the year, especially in spring and autumn, the days marked in red are also frequent in this community. Asturias really likes the "folixa", which is his particular way of calling the "party" and spending it in good company and in a friendly way. No one comes to feel like a foreigner at an Asturian party.

Here is a list of the most popular and fun.
