History Ribadedeva

In the council are abundant Paleolithic vestiges and rock paintings, as well as remains of Asturian and Neolithic settlements. In the Neolithic the area was occupied by the orgenomescos, a Cantabrian people. During the Roman period these lands became administratively dependent on Clunia (Burgos).

In the high Middle Ages, Ribadedeva and Llanes were part of the call Premorian province. It is a clear example of the remains of the monastery of Santa María de Tina. The existing necropolis in this place indicates that it was used as a cemetery before the construction of the building that today is in ruins, from the 13th century.

Mid-nineteenth century begins in Ribadedeva the phenomenon of emigration massive to America. The Archivo de Indianos located in Colombres is the best reference to know this time and the causes and consequences of emigration. Abundant in the council the large houses of Indians who built the Asturians who returned to the council, standing out for its architectural uniqueness, unique in the entire Cantabrian cornice. A clear reference to know this social phenomenon is the Archivo de Indianos de Colombres.
