|Luarca is mainly a marine town, as one can infer when he looks at this shot: rocked by the tide, a dozen fishing vessels add vivid colors to the inhabitants' daily life...
Rough cliffs and peaceful bays are conjugated in it, the ocher and, the oceanic sea, the placid beaches; the more varied green, ocre, blue and white tones that would envy the trowels of Sorolla and Van Gogh...
In between this lively world, an urbanism that began in the Upper Middle Ages, seating its houses between the rocks of a steep natural amphitheatre; later, gaining ground to the salt marsh, to make streets and seats and defenses of barbicans, towers and sentry boxes that still subsist in the local toponomy.
Luarca's old marine districts, hung on the port, have all the grace and the enchantment of popular architectonic work through the centuries.
