Xanas
The xana is a character found in Asturian mythology. Always female, she is a creature of extraordinary beauty believed to live in fountains, rivers, waterfalls or forested regions with pure water. She is usually described as small or slender with long blonde or light brown hair (most often curly), which she tends to with gold or silver combs woven from sun or moonbeams. The origin of the Asturian word xana is unclear, though some scholars see it as a derivation from the Latin name for the goddess Diana. References to where the mythological xanas lived are still common in Asturian toponyms. They also appear in Eastern Galician mythology.

La Senda del Hayedo: La cascada de Firvia, donde viven las xanas
El occidente asturiano es un mundo aparte dentro de la majestuosidad natural del Principado. Una continua caja de sorpresas de color verde donde la mar y montaña cantábrica se enlazan a través de pueblos vaqueiros como el de Luarca, de desembocaduras de ríos que llegan desde lo más interior de Ibias y Ancares (Navia) o de valles escondidos al tiempo y al espacio como los del Conceyu de Villayón.
