This week we have chosen a magnificent historic house for sale in Asturias. Its construction began in 1890, and its first owner was a Spanish man who emigrated to Cuba from Vegadeo and made a fortune.
It is a rare example of an indiana house because other emigrants who returned with wealth built ostentatious mansions generally. However, in this case, he wanted to pay homage to the typical village houses of his native area by developing a property with the same design but of enormous proportions.
