I have been mentioned before by a couple of friends about this event, and I spent there this whole weekend enjoying it.

It transforms completely this small and charming village into earlier days, where you can see huts where you can buy from wooden rods to hand painted portraits, from silver crafts toazabache figures, from jars of chestnuts with honey to cheese of Porrúa (closed to Afuega'l Pitu, but softer), and a long etcetera.

More features of the market is a central bar, drives with donkey, artisan merry-go-rounds, olde blacksmiths, and a clay workshop for children Smile.

Also, you can see a procession with fireworks of the traditional mythical Asturian creatures at night, such as the Cuélebre, the Busgosu and the Diañu Burlón.
