Grado, town and market
Every Sunday for centuries the squares and main streets of this town have filled with traders, customers and merchandise: the local ‘afuega’l pitu’ cheese, spelt bread, garden vegetables, craft work, tools, clothes and shoes… all of the shops are open. There is also a market on Wednesday morning. Bear in mind, however, that shops close all day Monday and on Wednesday afternoon.
