Routes vaqueiras

The Vaqueira region is made up of five Asturian municipalities: Cudillero, Valdés, Allande, Tineo and Salas. This territory was inhabited until the middle of the 20th century by one of the most marginalized ethnic groups in the history of Spain: the vaqueiros de alzada.
There are many itineraries that we can undertake to recover the visual memory of a town with a nomadic vocation, dedicated to transhumant livestock farming and herding, which has dotted the routes of brañas and temporary pastures. An impressive landscape that does not disappoint.

A little history

Historians claim that the first settlers of the capital were fishermen from other ports on the Cantabrian coast or from more distant seas that arrived escaping from the Normans. The shape of the port, in the shape of an elbow or knuckle, could well have given the name to the town. In any case, human settlement in the council dates back to prehistory, with the discovery of carved songs and varied instruments in Salamir and La Atalaya, belonging to the parishes of San Martín de Luiña and Santa María de Piñera, respectively. In the municipality they have been inventoried five pre-Romanesque forts: La Garita, in Riego Arriba, La Cavona, in Lamuño, El Curión in Santa María de Piñera and El Castro, located in Peñedo.

Much of the council of Cudillero was under the feudal power of the Omaña for nearly three hundred years (from the XIII to the XVI). A rather despotic rule that led to constant confrontations and fights. During the feudal period, fishermen formed their guild. From here sailors left for the coasts of Flanders, England, Scotland or Portugal, and many participated in the siege of Gibraltar and in the campaigns to conquer Seville and La Florida.

The Modern Age confirms the pixueta village as one of the main fishing centers in Asturias. The remodeling works of the port began in 1787 and, according to Jovellanos, cost 400.000 reales. The oldest building in the Pixueta capital is the Humilladero chapel, Gothic from the 13th century, although what is preserved today is only a part of the primitive chapel, which was always linked to the devotions of seafaring families.

At the end of the 19th century, the Palace of the Selgas in El Pito (a place adjacent to the town of Cudillero), a complex of palace, gardens and pavilions designed by the illustrious archaeologist Fortunato Selgas, which today is known as the Asturian Versailles.
