It is known as the city with more atmosphere and party in Asturias, which shows both winter and summer, so Gijón could not be on the sidelines of celebrating Carnival.
The Antroxu is how the Carnival is known in bable, and I recommend this dictionary and guide of the Carnival in Asturias to understand a little better what goes through the streets of Asturias in these dates.
In addition to the program of parties of the Carnival of Gijón 2019, which in Gijón (or Xixón) is celebrated from February 28 to March 6, during these days you can celebrate the Antroxu in a Gastronomic way.
With the Antroxu Menu that I talk about further down in the article, you can enjoy with the stomach what the rest of the body already enjoys, one of the funniest parties of the year.

As an eminently feminine act that is Thursday of Comadres, that night the restaurants and cider houses of Gijón will be filled with groups of women enjoying the absence of members of the opposite gender.
Although probably later, when out of glasses, gender differences are diluted, we all know that the night confuses.
