Natural and cultural wealth
La Vecilla de Curueño
Surrounded by earth and limestone mountains, La Vecilla lies in the valley from which it takes its name ’ Curueño. This rich farming region boasts a wealth of flora and fauna, and the Mampodre National Hunting Reserve is situated at the top of the valley.
Originally settled by the Celts, it was the Romans who organized the town’s farming activity, which would be further developed by the Moors between the 8th and the 10th centuries.
The town still conserves the 14th century tower, which belonged to the Álvarez de Acevedo family. This cylindrical stone tower once housed an archive containing important documents. It has now been restored, and is considered a Historic Site and an Asset of Cultural Interest.
