Luanco, under the influence of Cabo Peñas

It is the fishing village closest to Cabo Peñas, the northernmost point of Asturias, which gives it its character.  Luanco is idyllic both on land and on the sea. A hidden port and beautiful beaches, and a church that almost bathes in the Cantabrian Sea...

Its port was used as a shelter for its large fleet, originally dedicated to whaling and later to catching bonito, sardines, xarda (mackerel), pixel (monkfish), spider crabs, andaricas (small crabs) and barnacles.  Furthermore, there was a thriving canning industry.  This great seafaring tradition resulted in the Maritime Museum of Asturias, the doyen of the museums of the Principality (it was founded in 1948), an icon of culture linked to the sea. In the museum there are models of boats, fishing gear and tackle, in addition to a journey through the evolution of navigation, nautical charts and a wide selection of the flora and fauna of the Cantabrian Sea.

A walk through the historic centre will reaveal its Clock Tower, one of the few examples of 18th century public architecture, which has been used as a lookout tower, a prison and a warehouse.  Also, do not miss the opportunity to try its popular dishes and enjoy its spectacular views and beaches.
Additionally, Luanco has a wonderful promenade, where at the end of the La Marina beach you will find the church of Santa María, whose interior houses the Cristo del Socorro that, according to tradition, saved some Luanco sailors from a storm in the 17th century.

A hyperactive town in terms of sport and culture, it is well known for its dedication to sailing and regattas, and also for holding one of the most original and famous beach tennis tournaments for many years.

Gastronomically speaking, it shares its sweet and seafood tradition with Candás and competes with it in these areas, also producing marañuelas. And of course, as far as the environment is concerned, it happens to be one of the most "chic" Cantabrian seafaring villages.
