The former San Luis School houses the Emigration and Public Education Interpretation Centre.

Like many Asturian boroughs, Boal has traditionally been a land of emigrants and the "Society of People Born in the Borough of Boal", in Havana, was one of the largest associations of its kind at the time.

Its main objective was to provide a schoolhouse for all the villages in the borough, as education was their main concern.

The centre displays original educational resources from the time: notebooks, tables, maps, desks, etc., and other items that these emigrants kept very much in mind, and which still survive in the memory of the oldest residents in the area.
