Discover The Celts Spain

Asturias has a Celtic background whose culture it shares with Galicia, Scotland, Ireland, and Brittany. This ancestral people, who had a major influence up to the start of the Middle Ages, left behind an important heritage of music, culture, and design. Even though, under the influence of Christianity, some of the region's Celtic architectural heritage and monuments were hidden and destroyed, some examples have been preserved in the villages and mountains of this area so rich in tradition. A few remains dating back a thousand years can still be seen, such as the Castros: ancient village ruins that still display the structure of the dwellings and the settlements of this north Cantabrian culture. The most significant of these can be found in the Navía Historic National Park. Music was another important element of this culture and is still particularly resonant in the magical sounds made by its most famous instrument: the bagpipes. The region's Celtic origins have endured particularly in its way of looking at the world. Examples of this can be seen in Asturian mythology and customs.
