Allow visitors to get an overview of the municipality of Oviedo and significant.


It passes through the center of the council towards its eastern part. The reward: the rewarding encounter with rural villages and environment so as close to the center of Oviedo and wealth, more historical than artistic, its bygone buildings (houses, small temples ...).

One possibility is to start Uria Street and then enter the Argüelles and its extension to Jovellanos. Then, Azcarraga to break down the avenues Tenderina High and Low (Campo de los Patos, with the Arms Factory) that let the N-634, it brings us closer to Colloto.

Who later became a prominent gentleman, Diego Meléndez, illegitimate son of the vanquished, he escaped from deathrefuge "so the settings."

The old industrial architecture is especially interested in a factory Cerve l za (1868-1898), former Black Eagle, which highlights a central body, guarded by two crenellated towers of brick, opening in the walls seemed substantial glazed oriental arches, and within the village, in a factory sid l r a s a foam Ci ma (1875), founded by Joseph Cima Garcia, a native of this town and emigrant to Cuba, whence he returned enriched. Most of the cider production destined for overseas, where it is strongly rooted local beverage. Of polygonal, in its rationalist building spans three sides open, curved on the ground floor and upright in the middle and upper framed by outgoing and gables.

The visit to detained people can not ignore chale u n t, n º 43, located between the cider mill and the square of Pepin Rodriguez.

The building, which was later extended to a class aimed at older learners, sober struggle with alternating segmental and straight holes. The windows are framed with molding. The attic gable on the main facade and broken pediments of the sides are other significant contributions. A plaque plays a sailboat flanked by birds and sailing towards the island of Cuba.

In the workshop of the Vega (upper area of Faro) is still used a great and ancient wood lathe, which yields the most characteristic pieces: black pottery, a result of the concentration of iron in the mud, with another modality,white enamel coated resulting in two firings. The entire process from collection of gorse and removal of mud from the ground, through the work of brick-oven cooking, follows exactly the system used by Lito always. In its production distinguish unglazed pieces, black glossy (xarr is or cider jugs, pots d e fab is, pitchers of three loops) and glazed (jugs, oil, power, or bowls escudiell is) for an interior waves are used, geometrical shapes, leaves and schematic representation of animals, predominantly yellow, green and brown.
