The town of Mieres (Asturias) celebrates this folk and religious tradition in honour of Saint Cosme and Saint Damian.
Hundreds of pilgrims attend the celebration, which consists of arriving at the San Cosme y San Damián Shrine on foot to ask them for good health. After the High Mass at 12 noon, the “Puya del Ramu” (“bid for the branch”) takes place when the local bread, known as “escanada” is auctioned.
