Typical Costumes from Asturias in Cuba
The exhibition includes jackets, bullfighter's hats, embroidered shirts, necklaces, capes and wooden shoes, among other typical elements from that Spanish region.

Other items are large capes worn by villagers in weddings and funerals, as well as birch shoes worn to mitigate the effect of humidity.

Also on display are earrings, watches, buttons, tambourines, horns and castanets, among other typical elements from Asturias.

The objects on display were donated by the Spanish folkloric group Xaréu D Ochobre, on a visit in that Cuban region.
