DISCOVER LA RUTA DE PEPIN, A CULTURAL GUIDED WALKING TOUR THROUGH THE MOST RURAL ASTURIAS WITH A DELICIOUS CUISINE EXPERIENCE
Come and enjoy this rural adventure that reveals our family heritage farm and some of the most popular Asturian traditions. An exciting approach to Sirviella, a little village in the municipality of Cangas de Onís and certainly one of the most amusing activities for children that can be found in Asturias!
Pepín’s Guided Tour comprehends four activities/stages:
1. WALKING TOUR THROUGH THE VILLAGE OF SIRVIELLA
A lovely/enjoyable one kilometer guided walking tour through Sirviella’s country roads locally known as caleyas. During the walk we will learn about this particular landscape, its location, and the impact of livestock on Picos de Europa National Park. We will discover our traditional architecture (stilt/pile granaries, bread bins, wood balcony houses), as well as our local vegetable garden products, among those the traditional apple orchard, known as pomarada, and other apple cider products.
The remaining activities will take place at the family farm La Casería.
2. THE CIDER MILL
In this room we will taste a sip (culin) of our home-made apple cider. We will explain the ancient art of cider making and teach our visitors our technique of pouring our cider!
Our garden displays a replica of the mountain range Picos de Europa and a shepherd’s hut. At this stage, visitors will learn the process of making our artisan cheese Gamoneu, they will observe some native breeds of cattle raised at our prairie (Pita Pinta, Asturcon,Oveya Xalda) and we will continue talking about more shepherding traditions that still remain in this National Park.
4. CUISINE EXPERIENCE
We will end the tour with a taste of our best local cuisine, offering visitors a lunch with a variety of tapas, best local products, and artisan apple cider.
We want our guests to satisfy their appetite but also enjoy this unique and unforgettable experience in an amazing environment!
