The romanticism of Viavélez and the literary genius of Corín Tellado, sandy and pebbled beaches and cliffs, the sea flavour of its cuisine, the architecture of La Caridad and the Forge Museum make up a mosaic of unique emotions. That's El Franco.

It both overlooks and "lives" the sea, hence one of its most historic enclaves, the town and port of Viavélez, retains all the maritime flavour of the Bay of Biscay fishing harbours of bygone days. Strolling around the streets of Viavélez is a continuous discovery that leads to absolute bliss: the contemplation of the infinite ocean from privileged scenic balconies. Viavélez exudes romance, just like its "Favoured Daughter", the great universal master of the romance novel, Corin Tellado.

And that romanticism is spread throughout the borough, a territory where the coastal path, the Way of St James, the Forge Museum and the streets and architecture of its capital, La Caridad, complete a palette of emotions, feelings and unique experiences in this "slice" of the western Asturian coastline dotted with stunning beaches.
