Territories are born, grow and evolve. The passage of time changes their uses and the activities in them, their morphology and physiognomy. This is the central theme of the cultural route through the Nalón Valley, where the Industrial Revolution has stamped its special character on the countryside, traditions and the rural environment that live side by side with industrial archaeology and urban areas. A valley that’s attractive identity is based on contrasts and diversity.
To know the Nalón Valley and understand its development and present day appearance, it is essential to visit its museums and visitor centres, each one dedicated to a key element of our territory. A complement to this network is the art gallery in Langreo, the Eduardo Úrculo Municipal Art Gallery.
This tourist route offers the visitor the possibility to make a journey through space and time in one of the most emblematic valleys in Asturias, the Nalón Valley.
