Alba Festival in Quirós

Alba Festival in Quirós

The hermitage of the Virgen del Alba, located in the foothills of the Aramo mountain range, at an altitude of 1,090 metres, hosts the Fiesta del Alba in homage to the Virgin of the same name.

This event has been declared a Festival of Tourist Interest in the Principality of Asturias.

Different cultural and religious events take place throughout the day. After the procession, accompanied by bagpipes and drums, a solemn mass is held in the open air and sung in the Quirosan language. Other events include the spelt bread ramu auction, picnic, horse-tape races, the cowboy dressage exhibition, the rope pull, local sports and children's games.

In the afternoon, in the village of Salcedo, the fiesta continues with a large pilgrimage and open-air dance.

It is customary to go the day before and camp in the vicinity of the hermitage until the following day.
