Much more than descending a river!

DESCENSO FOLKLÓRICO DEL NALÓN
The Descenso Folklórico del Nalón is a summer-aquatic-carnival that is been celebrated in Pola de Laviana since more than 50 years and has matured to become the great summer event in Asturias that it is today.
Year after year, the party is getting bigger being the participation figures counted by thousands. There are already several editions in which the 4000 crew and 40 boats are exceeded.
Thousands of people from all over Asturias and other places in Spain come to Laviana to enjoy our most international festival.
We invite you to spend in Laviana the next third Saturday in August, so you enjoy a festival like you have never lived!
¡Puxa Asturias! ¡Puxa Laviana! ¡Puxa el Descenso! ... and If it rains, let it rain!
Whether you come in August to enjoy the Nalón Folkloric Descent, as if you do it at any other time of the year, the Council of Laviana offers you a lot of possibilities to enjoy during your stay.
