Aspe is also famous for growing a special kind of grape, which is eaten at the stroke of midnight, every New Year's Eve, all across Spain. The grapes are eaten one at a time, according to the clock striking 12, to signal the new year.
Aspe has a small foreign population, mainly Dutch and English. The local Castilian dialect is known for dropping the "s" and seseo.
Aspe has many tradition views and during the summer large fiestas take place which are great to watch and be a part of. Every other year La Virgen De Las Nieves comes to aspe and she is the patron of the town.
