For nine nights on August the botanic will fill with mythological characters that will wander the Garden's most beautiful spots.
The Botanic presents the XV edition of its Magic Nights. A nocturnal meeting with nature, mystery and tradition that get together for an uncommon show.

Once upon a time, on this very same place, there was a beautiful Atlantic forest, where magnificent oaks, alders and ash trees grew. It was populated by many animals and fantastic beings that the old Asturians believed in, and lived alongside them. As always, the new times made that old forest shrink, the population grew, the trees were cut down, the ground was ploughed and the old Astures stopped believing in these fantastic beings, and they were relegated to the world of tales and legends. But did they really disappear? And the answer is no. Behind these trees, some of those creatures still live, as they always have from time immemorial.

Our yew trees, powerful and old, stand tall as part of our main visit, encouraging Botanic Garden's fantastical beings to dance once they have tasted their magical sap. Under them the old celebrations, traditions and the fantasy of some characters have spent years and years surprising the MAGIC NIGHTS's nocturnal visitors. The Trasnus, Diañu Burlón, Güestia, Busgosu or Trasgu and Trasguín, will surprise the visitors throughout their trip of the Botanic Garden.
