The Nalón Estuary and its influence on the borough.

The "Gateway to the Sea" has a permanent exhibition whose contents are related to the environmental characteristics of the Nalón Estuary and the ethnographic culture of the borough.

The importance of the elver or bay eel and its biological cycle constitute the main theme of the exhibition, along with other activities that drove the economy of the place, such as the fish canning factories and the collecting of coal in the estuary.
