  29. 29. IMPORTANT DAYS•  Ntra. Sra. de África, 5 of  august• Holy Week  • Carnivales• San Antonio, 13 of june: • Cross of May:• Corpus Christi: • Day of Ceuta, 2 of september:• San Daniel y Compañeros  Mártires, 10 of october: • La Mochila, 1 of november:
  30. 30. Location:• Asturias is an autonomous community of Spain in  the iberian peninsula and is located in the coast of  the Cantabria sea.
  31. 31. RELIEF:• The Cantabrian  Mountains (Cordillera Cantábrica)  form  Asturiass  natural border with the province of León to the south. In the eastern  range,  the  Picos  de  Europa National  Park  contains  the  highest  and  arguably  most  spectacular  mountains,  rising  to  2,648  metres  (8,688 ft)  at  the  Torrecerredo  peak.  the Parque  Natural  de  Redes in  the central east, the central Ubiñas south of Oviedo, and the Parque  Natural  de  Somiedo in  the  west.  The  Cantabrian  mountains  offer  opportunities  for  activities  such  as  climbing,  walking,  skiing  and  caving,  and  extend  some  200  kilometres  (120 mi)  in  total,  as  far  as Galicia province to the west of Asturias and Cantabria province to  the east.  Picos de Europa Parque Natural de Redes
  32. 32. FOOD AND DRINK• While Asturias is especially known for its seafood,  the most famous regional dish is fabada asturiana,  a rich stew typically made with large  white beans (fabes), shoulder of pork (lacón), black  sausage (morcilla), and spicy sausage (chorizo).  Fabada Asturiana black sausage 
  33. 33. Food and drink• Apple groves foster the production of the traditional alcoholic drink,  a natural cider (sidra). When Asturian cider is served, it is poured in a  particular way, El Escanciado: since it is natural and bottled without  gas, the bottle must be held above the head allowing for a long  vertical pour (requiring considerable skill and accuracy), which causes  the cider to be aerated when it splashes into the glass below. This  gives it a pleasant "zingy" taste. The glass is passed around and  everyone drinks from the same glass. After drinking most of the  glass, it is customary to splash a little out onto the ground, as a way  to clean the glass of any lees for the next pouring.  The  Escanciador
  34. 34. Economy• For centuries, the backbone of the Asturian economy  was agriculture and fishing. Milk production and its derivatives was  also traditional, but its big development was a byproduct of the  economic expansion of the late 1960s. Nowadays, products from the  dairy cooperativeCentral Lechera Asturiana are being commercialised  all over Spain.• The main regional industry in modern times, however,  was coal mining and steel production: in the times of Francisco  Francos dictatorship, it was the centre of Spains steel industry. The  then state-owned ENSIDESA steel company is now part of the  privatised Aceralia now part of the ArcelorMittal Group. The industry  created many jobs, which resulted in significant migration from other  regions in Spain, mainly Extremadura, Andalusia and Castile and  León. Minery in  Asturias
  35. 35. • The steel industry is now  in decline when measured  in terms of number of jobs  Economy and  provided, as is the mining.  The reasons for the latter  industry. are mainly the high costs  of production to extract  the coal compared to  other regions. Large out- of-town retail parks have  opened near the regions  largest cities (Gijón and  Oviedo), whilst the ever- present Spanish  construction industry  appears to continue to  thrive.  Steel Industry
  36. 36. Main attractions:• Oviedo  the  capital  city  of  Asturias:  a  clean,  picturesque  city  with  a  diverse  architectural  heritage. Santa  María  del  Naranco and San  Miguel de Lillo, a pre-Romanesque church and a palace respectively,  which were built by the first Asturian kings on Mount Naranco, to the  north  of  the  city.  In  modern  architecture,  the Palacio  de  Congresos  de Oviedo, designed by Santiago Calatrava.• Gijon, the biggest city of Asturias, is a coastal city famous for cultural  and  sports  events  and  there  is  a  beach  tourism  centre  in  northern  Spain.  It  also  is  famous  for  the  traditional  Asturian  gastronomy  and  for  being  an  important  Asturians  cider  production  spot.  There  are  many museums and places to visit in the city. It is also important to  mention  the Laboral  Ciudad  de  la  Cultura,  including  a  Modern  Art  Museum, Theatre, etc. Gijón  Oviedo

Main attractions• Avilés,the third largest city in Asturias, is now becoming an essential  touristic spot in the Principality. "La villa del adelantado"(as locals  usually call it) is a meeting point where present and past meet. This is  most notably clear once we go through the streets in the old quarter  of the city. "Saint Nicholas of Bari" or "Capilla de los Alas" in  Romanesque and Romanesque-Gothic style, respectively; Palacio de  Balsera, in Modernist style or St. Thomas of Canterbury church  (dating from the 13th century)are just a few examples which clearly  show the magnificent historical patrimony to be found in the city.
