Avilés Town Hall Square
En el S. XVII se produce una profunda transformación urbanística del Avilés medieval amurallado. Se construye un nuevo ayuntamiento extramuros en la que se llamó la plaza de Fuera de la Villa, actual Plaza de España. Esto, unido a un boom demográfico, provoca que se desplace el centro de poder y la nobleza y gente pudiente se aventure a construir sus viviendas también fuera de la zona amurallada. Se generan nuevas calles, llenas de edificios señoriales, creándose el llamado ensanche barroco avilesino.
In this tour through the Old Town of Avilés we will go through its oldest streets, belonging to the medieval Avilés, and the one known as Avilés baroque expansion. We will go through the street of Galiana full of arcades, where we will get to know some secrets that the street will reveal to us. We will cross the Ferrera Park, former private gardens of the Marquises of Ferrera, from the 17th century, and continue along Rivero, another of the streets that are part of this Baroque expansion.
During the tour we will see emblematic buildings such as the San Nicolás de Bari parish and the church of the Franciscan Fathers, from the 13th century. We will also see the music conservatory of Julián Orbón, the house of indians of Arias de La Noceda and the Palacio Valdés theater.
Of course, in the Plaza de España, the beginning of the Avilesian baroque expansion, we will know the story of the Town Hall and other nearby buildings that made history, such as the Palace of Camposagrado or the house of García Pumarino (Marta and María).
With this guided tour we will push out into one of the moments of greatest splendor of the town, in which the nobility gave its greatest displays of power and we will connect with the most recent past, in which the thriving nobility and the Indians begin to occupy a place increasingly important in Avilés.
