Fishing town near the mouth of Villaviciosa Estuary. Boasting a whaling tradition, it is widely known for being the port where Emperor Carlos V disembarked to tread on Spanish soil for the first time.

Tazones was an important whaling port in the past and also the place where King Carlos I trod on Spanish soil for the first time on his journey from Flanders. Nowadays, it is well known for its fish and seafood and for being one of the most picturesque fishing harbours on the Asturian coast, indeed, its houses and streets form a multi-coloured setting that takes the visitor back in time.
