Legends from Avilés, by Laura González Granda

The old quarter of Aviles declared artistic and monumental heritage in 1995 is a lively museum of our past. Going all over its streets and squares makes it possible for us to discover the XII century history.

Especially during the summer when the legends take place. The legends are short theatre plays which are shown at representative places of the city such as Vadecarzana’s Palace, Ferreras’ park or Camposagrado’s Palace every week during August, usually on Thursday. The old quarter legends invite us to go for a magic walk enjoying adventures, customs and traditions which have given sense to the town.

Most of the actors are students so this also means a chance for them to practise what they have learned during the school year. As a result of this remunerated chance they show the best of themselves, there are ballet dancers too who have to make a heavy effort dancing most of the times in the street in front of the public.

In other words it is a great opportunity to watch good theatre free.
