Gastronomic experiences

Whatever your tastes, in Asturias you'll find a range of different types of experiences, each with a specific timetable, price and duration. They can be divided into several groups:

Asturias with the taste of the sea. Sign up for a visit to the traditional seafront fish markets and canning plants.

Asturias from flower to flower. A brief tour of beehives… and a chance to try the honey!

Share some exquisite cider. A chance to enjoy strolling through apple orchards and visiting the cider presses to see where cider is produced.

A harvest of flavours. Can you smell that aroma? It's the typical freshly-baked bread known as 'pan de escanda'.

Discover the wine of Asturias. Wineries and vineyards await your visit.

A paradise for cheese lovers. Cabrales, Afuega'l Pitu… it would be a sin to leave Asturias without trying its variety of cheeses.

Asturias and its famous milk. Children will have a wonderful time petting cows or enjoying some rice pudding.

Practice Eco Asturias. A chance to discover the secrets of an organic vegetable garden, or how to ride the typical Asturcón breed of horse.

Routes with good taste. What could be better than a local guide to help you savour all the best dishes?

A tradition with the name of a saint. What's the key to the reputation of some Asturian recipes such as the white bean stew known as 'fabada'?

Other tastes, other sensations. Astronomical observations with gastronomic associations. Can you imagine such a thing?

Experience a moment of flavour. Choose which festivals and gastronomic events you'd like to go to.
