When searching for cideries, search for the word llagar or llagares. Sidrerias are cider bars.
I have a fondness for Llagar JR, Llagar Castañon, and El Duque. Each is completely different in size and feel. El Duque is a restaurant with a compact and interesting cidery in the cellar. I had never seen a conical pyramid before. It's also just a short walk away from the amazing botanical gardens (recommended).
https://sidradeasturias.es/en/ is the website for the Asturias DOP. It appears to have more information about the highest standards of apples and ciders for the region than I can review right now. There is a beautiful collection of photos and technical descriptions of the region's traditional apples.
https://www.lasidra.as/en/home/ is a wonderful resource. It is a dizzying collection of past and current events and other information. This is the online version of the beautiful La Sidra bimonthly magazine.
LaSidra.as has the most comprehensive and easiest-to-navigate event calendar listing festivals and other events. Go straight to the calendar image in the right column and click on the date to see all the events and details for the day. Don't click on the Events tab. That's for past stuff (still interesting).
La Sidra is also the host for the SISGA International Hall of Gala Ciders. The 12th edition has been announced for September 29- October 2. I will attempt to attach event and entry information below. It is a free competition and quite the cultural experience. They will put you up in a hotel for 2 nights, and take you to amazing cideries, cider bars and Asturian barbeques (espiche).
[More information on SISGA will be provided in a standalone conversation to follow shortly]
Another resource is https://ciderlands.org/destinations/asturias/. Ciderlands.org is "The International Network of Cider Culture and Tourism Destinations." They have sections on 10 regions including Galicia, Basque, and Asturias. Also Germany, Norway and 5 areas in the UK.
"Ciderlands, the International Cider Destinations Network, was founded in September 2018, during the International Cider Culture and Tourism Meet-up held by Sagardoaren Lurraldea in the Basque Country.
The meetings were attended by Hans Weiss (MostBarone, Austria), Andreas Purt (Moststraße, Austria), Helen and Philip Troughton (Visit Armagh & Armagh Cider Company, Northern Ireland), Elizabeth Pimblett and Gabe Cook (Hereford Cider Museum & The Ciderologist, England), Andy Black (Visit Herefordshire, England), Susanna Forbes (Little Pomona & Drink Britain), Sally Perks and Jayne Hunt (Welsh Perry and Cider Society & Orchards Wales, Wales), Michael Stöckl (Cider World Frankfurt, Germany), Asbjørn Børsheim (Frukt og Siderruta and Ulvik & Hardanger Cider Producers, Norway), Miguel Ángel Naredo (Comarca de la Sidra, Asturias), Jesús Armenteros (Feira da Sidra & Sidra Ribela, Galicia), Jennifer Scouarnec (Cidref & Cidrerie de Rozavern, Brittany), Joxe Mari Alberro (Sagardoaren Lurraldea, Basque Country) and Leire Alkorta (Sagardoetxea Cider Museum, Basque Country), as well as Haritz Rodriguez (aka Ciderzale, head of international relations of Sagardoaren Lurraldea and director at Barking Blogs) who was in charge of leading the meeting."
