The Teyeru craft was a relevant activity in the economy of Asturias from the 17th century up to the 1940s. On this half-day hike, I invite you to hike along the “Ruta de los Teyeros” and discover and learn about this old and very important craft in eastern Asturias.

During this program, I’ll teach you about the different types of Teyeru workers and their techniques. I’ll show you how they used to make a roof and bricks so you can learn about the process and see it in person. Also, I’ll tell you about the history and the social and economic conditions in which these workers had to live. Additionally, apart from the Teyeru craft, you’ll also learn about the local dialect developed around this activity: the Xiriga, a central part of the Asturian culture.

Our itinerary will begin in La Huera de Meré, where we’ll visit the last water mill in the area. Once there, we’ll talk about its mechanism and you’ll have the chance to buy flour. Then, we’ll go to the village of Las Xareras and enjoy hiking for an extension of 2,5 kilometers through the mountains. On the way, we’ll contemplate fantastic views of Picos de Europa and the sea.

Afterwards, we’ll have our course about the craft and you’ll observe the process and the materials used one century ago. Finally, we’ll share a traditional Asturian meal and end our program. The total duration of the trip will be around 4.30 hours.

So, do you find this hiking in Asturias interesting? The trail is very easy and suitable for children too. Don’t hesitate to send the request and make your reservation. I’ll be glad to tell you everything I know about this fascinating culture!

Another easy and interesting adventure could be this hike that I lead in the Sierra de Cuera through the Ruta de los últimos bandoleros. Check it out!
