Fiesta de Nuestra Señora de Andrín
• Fiesta of Nuestra Señora de Andrín or the seduction of the pericote

Andrín is one of the prettiest and most authentic villages of the district of Llanes, and on August 15 it celebrates the feats of its patron saint, with all its traditions, local colour and Asturian character.
The street processions, pipe bands and costumes of Llanes literally take over the village, where one of the most outstanding acts is Solemn Mass.


After the Mass and before the aperitif with vermouth and the family lunch, the traditional dances take pride of place on this important day, especially the  pericote, which is deeply rooted in this area and has a curious history.


This fiesta is one of the grand venues of the summer in Llanes.
