Luarca is the main town in the council of Valdés, in the western part of Asturias. It is a village that has a strong fishing tradition but in recent years has established itself as one of the most visited tourist spots in Asturias. This is largely due to the fact that it has been listed as one of the most beautiful villages in Spain.
A little history
Luarca was consolidated as an important fishing port since the Middle Ages. In fact, the town conserves numerous vestiges of that period, in the form of heritage elements, streets and symbolic quarters of the town. Nowadays it is one of the most outstanding tourist attractions in western Asturias.
