What to see and do, where to sleep and eat ... Caravia

It's a small coastal council delimited by the mountain ranges of El Fito and Sueve to the South, and furrowed by the Duesos river that seeks its mouth at the Espasa beach. Don't miss the green meadows and wide flocks that serve as pasture for cattle, sheep and horses, made up of the famous Asturcones. It limits to the north with the Cantabrian Sea, to the south with Parres, to the east with Ribadesella and to the west with Colunga.

History

They have found decorated ceramic remains, swords, tools and a splendid fibula that represents an Asturcón, that speak of the human presence in these lands in the Paleolithic and the Neolithic; the most important finding took place in the year 1917: the castreño enclosure of peak of the Castro or castro of Caravia. About 240 people lived in it, these men belonged to the Astures and it seems likely that they belonged to the Lugones subtribe. In Caravia was founded in the eleventh century the Benedictine monastery of San Jacobo or Santiago. In the nineteenth century the neighborhood, defending its identity, opposed the dissolution of the council and the union with neighboring Colunga. In this same century French troops landed on the beach of Espasa. Throughout the council there are examples of popular architecture such as typical mansions and granaries, and also good examples of medieval and Renaissance buildings.
