This week in Spain, many sports are celebrating festivals of great interest today is the chance to talk Sella, to be held this Saturday (August 9) in Asturias.
Since 1930, we can enjoy this sporting event that has already become a inaludible party for all those who enjoy natural landscapes and sports.
This holiday in Asturias is known as the "festival of Piragües" and consists of a descent down the River Sella canoe for 20Km. The race starts at the bridge and ends Arriondas bridge Ribadesella. In it, increasingly, we find large paddlers who join the festival to compete and enjoy the wonderful Asturian landscapes.
On the occasion of the celebration of Sella takes place every year on the River Sella twinning with another river, either nationally or internationally in order to begin the race at 12 noon. This year the river will "join" to be the Sella Avilés.
But anyone visiting this race a question is asked, where is the best location along the 20km route to enjoy this show. Everyone has their priorities in the output to see all the boats coming in to see the arrival of the entrance champion ... No problem because the towns through which passes this race are cut off to traffic and there is the "river train" that takes a journey along the river with stops at various places where you can go down and look closely at the descent.
Once the race ends at the point of arrival in the Fields of Ova (rained) the awards and a typical Asturian food to put the finishing touches on the day consisting of white beans and rice pudding and continuous party is held Ribadesella night. But could not miss at any party in Spain throughout this competition will also be entertained with music, ruas and other activities during the race and the days before.
