A wide and varied exhibition that takes us back in time and brings us visually, didactic and entertaining to the most traditional culture of this region.
The spaces They are organized around three themes, which allow to know the traditional Asturian life:
· Space dedicated to the culture of bread. It is attended with emphasis to spelled cultivation, the most widespread in the area and the main cereal until the XNUMXth century. The mesorias are exposed to collect, a yellowfin tiller to separate the grain from the shell and a hydraulic flour mill. An advanced class of the complete process.
· Space dedicated to the house. We can see a recreation of the kitchen, which was always the center of peasant life, and that it has here all its elements: the calamilleras to hang the pot; the stools where it was eaten; the dough maker to knead the bread and the "forno" to bake it daily; the bogadoiro to wash the laundry; and also a good number of household utensils. There are also recreated a dining room and a bedroom, all with noble wood furniture. Also a loom and the utensils used for the transformation of wool and linen into thread such as cards, restiellos, spinning wheels, fuses, etc.
· Space dedicated to traditional trades. Forge, loom, basketry, carpentry, pottery, press, barbershop, school.
The forge of the ironmonger where to make and repair iron utensils; a basket bench where goxos and baskets were made with hazelnut sticks; a carpenter's bench and lathe; a madreñero bench that was used to empty this very traditional footwear; a cobbler's bench; the wheel for sharpening knives, and ceramic samples from the Miranda workshop (Avilés).
