Homemade Apple juice and cider & brunch
PACA owns one hectare of land with apple trees («pomarada») and every year in our «llagar» we make cider, a traditional Asturian drink. During the workshop, we will share the whole process: apple picking, washing, apple pressing and finally we will taste the sweet apple juice fresh from the press.
Los Llagares are the places where cider is made, and the «pomaradas» are the farms where apple plantations grow. Pomaradas and llagares one of the most characteristic manifestations of Asturian culture and landscape. So this is an oportunity to experience and discover the world of cider from the inside of daily life in the farmhouse.
fee: 35 euro/person. kids under 7 free. minimum 2 persons.
The price includes taste and brunch with typical products and traditional cider and one bottle of fresh apple juice to bring home.
Walking is the best way to understand and appreciate the landscapes we pass through. Being in PACA, a traditional Asturian farm house also means understanding its context: the past and its traces in the present.
An informal walking tour lasting about two hours in which we will FOCUS ON unique elements of the landscape, the ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE of traditional Asturias and the INTANGIBLE CULTURE that it contains: a large number of «HÓRREOS» and «PANERAS» (iconic granaries built in wood and raised from the ground by wooden or stone pillars), fountains and community laundries that we find in the surroundings of PACA, cattle farms, orchards but also the effects of industrialization in this clearly rural-urban area. The intention is an informal approach to the Asturian traditional agrarian landscape and its future evolution.
Nearby (15 min. walking from PACA) is the Villa Romana de Veranes museum, a site-museum that we recommend to visit. In Gijón we also recommend Pueblo de Asturias etnographic Musum.
At the end of the walk, inside PACA’s «panera» will be a DOCUMENTARUY SCREENING related to the topics discussed during the walk.
FEE: 18 euro/person. Kids under 7 free. FOR Groups of +4 people: 12 euros/person.
Depending of the time you will remain with us, you may be interested in some of our art courses and workshops. We have planned some of them as an «art taste» for you (just for the pleasure to try, learn and enjoy with arts) and others are organized in 12 or 24 hours cyclus in order to learn in deep or improve skills in different art techniques.
