Casa natal of Jovellanos:

• Who is Jovellanos?

Jovellanos was born in 1744. He was a writer, lawyer and a very important politician in Spain.He created in 1794 in Gijón the “Real Instituto Asturiano de Náutica y Mineralogía” where all children could study.

This building is a palace where Jovellanos was born in 1744 and lived, and it is one of the most famous buildings in Gijon.It was designed by Gregorio Garcia de Jove between fifteenth to eighteenth century and it is the type of “casona asturiana”.

The old ” Casa Natal de Jovellanos”is nowadays a museum . Since 1971 it has housed different objects linked to the life of Jovellanos, such as his furniture or his personal collection of Spanish painting; or some pieces of work of “asturianos” artists like “The Altarpiece of the sea” designed by Sebastian Miranda. The first altarpiece, which was designed in 1933, was destroyed in the civil war but it is considered one of the most important works of Sebastian Miranda.
Next to this house is “La Capilla de los Remedios” , where Jovellanos was buried.
