The Roaring 20s in Benia de Onís

Benia de Onis Traditional Market has been a reference for many others held in Asturias. Its distinguishing feature is its original time setting, focusing on the 1920s. It is a must event that allows the young and not-so-young to learn about a bit of recent history. The goal is to foster loyalty among visitors, so that those who come once do not fail to return on subsequent occasions. Nothing on view in the square in Benia will remind you of the 21st century. Spinners, clog makers, carvers, musicians, all dressed according to the custom of the time, with care taken to every detail, will help you feel that time has actually stopped sometime around 1920. Each year, all the local people get involved in the preparations for the market, collaborating with period costumes and offering the public their experience and knowledge in traditional arts and crafts as well as delicious local produce.
