Every 11 November, the village of Aller (in Moreda, Asturias) celebrates one of the most popular autumn folklore festivals in Asturias.
The festival is organised by the San Martín Humanitarian Association, and begins with the traditional sung mass of San Martín, accompanied by the sound of the typical Asturian bagpipes. Then, the auction known as the puya del ramu begins, where people are invited to bid for emmer bread (so-called because of the flour used to make it) which has been previously blessed in the religious ceremony.
