  • The birth House of Jovellanos was a former Palace. It is currently a very interesting museum that combines various types of works:-nineteenth century Asturian art i XX. -Painting schools Flemish and Dutch XVII i XVIII. -Avant-garde painting. -Modernist sculpture. Highlight the complete study that makes the artist Sebastián Miranda of his work "Altarpiece of the sea". It starts with photography in black and white, continuous with a sketch in plaster and ends with the work in polychrome wood. You must visit for lovers of painting and sculpture. Free entry.

  • The Museum is small and is worth a visit just to see the wooden reredos which tells the history of the city. A work of art is amazing and if you are with any resident or guide, I'm sure he will tell you the story of each one that appears on the reredos.

  • The Museo Casa Natal de Jovellanos opened its doors to the public on August 6, 1971, with the municipal art collection, hitherto exhibited on the ground floor of the former Instituto Jovellanos. Since this date, its programming focuses on the study and diffusion of the figure of the illustrated, as well as in the conservation, documentation, research and dissemination of municipal art heritage. The rest of the rooms presents a selection of the rich artistic heritage preserved in the Museum, consisting of more than three thousand inventory parts, including the funds belonging to the Asturian of the late 19th century and 20th century art. The route, according to chronological criteria, is articulated in a speech that explains the passage of manners naturalism to the avant-garde. Since its creation the Museum's collection has experienced considerable growth, thanks to the development of a continuous program of acquisitions and donations from collectors and local artists, notably Alberto Paquet, Lledo-Suarez marriage, Julia Alcayde, Nicanor Piñole, etc. Its equity fund is currently constituted by the art collections, both bibliographic and documentary funds that allow us to deepen the study of the artistic heritage of Asturias.
