The way of life in a traditional house

The house shows the way of life of rural society in the area up until the mid-20th century. The ensemble consists of five buildings housing the various rooms of a traditional house: the house with its entrance hall, kitchen, living room, bedrooms, attic and cellar with oven included, in addition to other outhouses devoted to peasant activities: stables, barn, storehouse, loom, carpentry, chicken house, wine cellar, woodshed and potato shed.

In the fields near the house, visitors can also enjoy the presence of typical Asturian farmhouse animals: chickens, cows and a horse.
