In La Villa de Llanes they highlight its old town declared a Historic-Artistic Complex; the Casonas de Indianos and the port, where the work “Los Cubos de la Memoria”, the creation of the Basque artist Agustín Ibarrola, is located. The official history of the Villa dates back to the beginning of the 13th century when it obtained the Fuero de Independencia under the reign of Alfonso IX.
