Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer you a composition with the new architecture of the Asturian town of Luanco. I hope you like it, then some letters about the villa.

Luanco (Lluanco in Asturian and officially Lluanco / Luanco) is a parish and a town, capital of the Asturian council of Gozón, in Spain In 2005 the Governing Council of the Principality of Asturias officially declared the bilingual denomination Lluanco / Luanco, to name this town, is located between Candás and Avilés, a few kilometers from Cabo de Peñas, which is the northernmost point of the Principality. It was mainly a fishing village, although in recent decades it has developed thanks to tourism.

During the War of Spanish Independence, the French occupied Luanco in 1809 and in 1811, causing serious damage to the town.

At the end of the 19th century, Luanco became a summer leisure center. The inauguration of a spa and a bathhouse on the beach of La Ribera in 1890 symbolizes this conversion. The summer tourism generated by these spaces led to the installation of industrial companies dedicated to the production of preserves and service establishments related to this new form of leisure, although Luanco did not suffer an industrialization similar to that of neighboring towns such as Candás or Avilés, between Other reasons for not building railways.

The town of Luanco has a busy dock and a port, the port of Gayo, whose works began in 1903 with the support of Minister Félix Suárez Inclán, a resident of Avilés. In 2011, the Marina was inaugurated along with that of Gayo. The promenade was built between 1915 and 1930. The inauguration of the Teatro del Carmen in 1913 allowed the appearance of activities such as theater, zarzuela, cuplé, Sunday dance and cinema. In 1929 another theater was inaugurated, the Modern Theater, of greater dimensions than the previous one and that counted on three rooms of projection.

During the Spanish Civil War it suffered the blockade of the Francoist army by sea, since the summer of 1936, and lived the evacuation in October 1937 of the Government of Asturias and most of the Republican Army of the North decreed by Belarmino Tomás.

With the construction of the factories of Ensidesa in Avilés and Veriña in Gijón in the 1950s and 1960s, Luanco acquires functions as a dormitory. From the 1960s and 1970s, mass tourism began, coming mainly from the interior of Asturias, Castilla or Madrid, experiencing a remarkable urban growth and the construction of second home developments until the arrival of the real estate crisis. Despite the expansion of these urbanizations, its traditional image in the old town.
