  • In the Museum the best is the part of Jovellanos and the altar of the sea from the top floor. Paintings are unequal, architecture especially abroad seemed very well preserved and reformed: it should go without expecting great things

  • After visiting the Roman baths and the Church of San Pedro Cimavilla I entered to visit the Museo Casa Natal de Jovellanos. Did not pay entrance. Only access you already are in the center of the House and looking up to see the structure of typical houses. It has 3 floors which displays works by different artists. The altarpiece of the sea is displayed on the top floor. The fact that there was just a family and I visit, the watchdog followed you all the time bother me much what trouble you not allowing to make the visit at your own pace.

  • Small and well-organized Museum funded by Asturian of late Nineteenth and early twentieth Centuries painters. Also a couple of monographic rooms with local artists. Interesting and nice to see, with a section dedicated to Jovellanos. It does not much if you already saw the Museum of fine arts of Asturias in Oviedo, but free admission makes it worth a quick visit.

  • 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.

  • Apart from the building itself, one of the few palaces shallow and home birth, that he already deserves to know him, exposures tend to have much charm and there are small jewels in its permanent collection. I recommend that you seek the altarpiece of the sea of Sebastian Miranda portraying real characters of Cimavilla in the rula (the fish market), grandchildren of them can still identify their grandparents in this work. Otherwise the square where is the best terrace of Cimavilla, reguardada wind and very open to receive all the Sun.

  • Jovellanos was one of the most important figures of the Spanish enlightenment. Man of letters, technical, political... Very lucid and very advanced, among many things, he promoted the pajares Gijón road or I think the school of Mineralogy and nautica (the cider outside his home). The Museum is free. It has costumbrista painting below, avant-garde in the second, a room with items from it and above the reredos of the sea, Sebastian Miranda
