two powerful ecclesiastical entities, “Oviedo” and “Pravia”, is would arise where a small fishing port
that today holds the capital.
It will be in the 13th century, when it will start a period of transformation in this sector. It is at this
time when “la puebla de Pravia” was founded and since then all the lands of the current Cudillero
will be integrated in Pravia. The first news relative to the existence of the town of Cudillero is longer

fishing and all this development had to be mediated by the powerful family of Oman, which
exercised its power in the region at this time.
