Suggestions: Always bring informal and warm clothes and footwear. If you have the chance during your meeting or event to attend an “espicha” you will be grateful. The Espicha is a festivity in an apple press where the people from Asturias go with informal clothes and solid shoes. The presses are always cool and permanently impregnated with the smell of apples. Your feet will not get warm until you have drunk sufficient cider and danced to the sound of the bagpipes.
