Some background about the emigration from Asturias

Thousands of Asturians emigrated to Argentina, Mexico, Cuba and other parts of ‘the Americas’ in the 19th and 20th century. Many of them found their new home in these countries. Only around 5% of them returned.

Casas de Indianos

The returning emigrants were called Indianos. They built large mansions reflecting their newly acquired wealth. These houses and gardens bear little resemblance to the local Asturian architecture. Indeed, they are more similar to homes found in Buenos Aires, Havana, or Mexico. In the town of Colombres alone, there are 68 of these Casas de Indianos.

Asturian Emigration Museum

An optional visit of this ancestry tour in Asturias is the ‘Indianos Archive’ or Emigration Museum in Colombres. This museum is situated in a typical Casa de Indianos built in 1906 by a returning emigrant from Mexico. In this museum you find various artifacts related to the Asturian emigration. For example, travel tickets, posters announcing ship departures and photographs of various Asturian associations formed in the new world.
