Langreo,, officially Llangréu / Langreo, is a municipality and town of northern Spain, province of The Principality of Asturias. It is the 4th largest town of Asturias with 43.000 inhabitants. Langreo is located in the centre of Asturias, approximately 20 km of Oviedo. It was an important mining and metallurgical center.In the neighbourhood fruit and cider are produced, and there are still important coal mines, foundries, and factories for the manufacture of coarse cloth.HistoryAccording to a legend Langreo was the place where the Moorish governor Munuza was killed while trying to flee from Asturias at the beginning of the Reconquest. Langreo was settled by the Romans, who built a large Roman bridge that is not conserved today.In the past, it was one of the most important mining and metallurgical points of Spain since the 18th century, and it was also well known because of workers struggles and its cultural life. The 3rd railway to be built in the Iberian Peninsula was the FC of Langreo. The Factory of La Felguera was one of the most important siderurgy centers in Spain, and the Langreo mines was well known in whole Spain.Because of the Spanish "Industrial Restructuring", Langreo lost its industrial importance, but today it conserves important factories like Bayer, where 100% of the acetylsalicylic acid of the German enterprise is produced. Langreo also holds the technologies centre Valnalón.
