Today we will walk through three towns that keep that historical flavor, small villages worth a visit and that allow us to travel a good part of the Asturian geography.
San Emiliano, the lost village
We are in a lost point of a large mountainous municipality of 370 square kilometers and barely 2.000 inhabitants: Allande. Messy alleys and standing out the House of the Tower. This stately complex is organized around a quadrangular tower, with three floors and built in the XNUMXth century, to which two bodies of lower height are attached, one contemporary with the tower and the other somewhat later. The Tower sports four shields corresponding to some of the most powerful families in Allande.
Undoubtedly a town with a medieval flavor that leaves no one indifferent.

The nucleus of Argul constitutes one of the greatest architectural singularities in western Asturias, its houses are stone, slate and wood constructions and have corridors, galleries and tunnels for the passage of people and livestock and high corridors to move from one building to another without stepping on the street, what in the area is called "Veiriles".
