Fotografía Paisaje asturiano, casa verde con hórreo. Landscapes of Spain, on the road, green house and hórreo (granary)

Paisaje asturiano de carretera, casa de color llamativo, dentro de lo que cabe pues es verde en paisaje verde, con hórreo. 
Cerca de Ranón, próximo Avilés, camino de la playa de Bayas.


An hórreo is a typical granary from the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula (mainly Galicia, Asturias and Northern Portugal), built in wood or stone, raised from the ground by pillars (pegollos in Asturian, esteos in Galician, abearriak in Basque) ending in flat staddle stones (vira-ratos in Galician, mueles or tornarratas in Asturian, or zubiluzea in Basque) to avoid the access of rodents. Ventilation is allowed by the slits in its walls. Similar buildings (barns) on staddle stones are found in Southern England.






La Isla de La Deva y Playón de Bayas es un conjunto declarado monumento natural situado en el Principado de Asturias, en terrenos del concejo de Castrillón y Soto del Barco, al este de la desembocadura del río Nalón.
El Playón de Bayas, con casi 3 km de longitud, es el arenal más largo de Asturias. Su formación no es fortuita. Es debida a la gran cantidad de sedimentos que arrastra el río Nalón, que drena casi dos tercios de la región asturiana, y que se sitúa al oeste de la playa. Las corrientes litorales dominantes en el mar Cantábrico, de oeste a este, arrastran estos sedimentos haciéndolos tropezar con el resalte del Cabo Vidrias y depositándolos sobre el arenal de Bayas, lo que da lugar a la formación de un importante sistema dunar, sólo interrumpido por la desembocadura del arroyo de Fontebona, que deslinda los concejos de Soto del Barco y Castrillón

The Island of La Deva and Playon de Bayas is declared a natural monument located in the Principality of Asturias, on land in the municipality of Castrillón and Soto del Barco, east of the mouth of the river Nalon whole.
Playon de Bayas, with nearly 3 km in length, is the longest beach of Asturias. Its formation is not random. It is due to the large amount of sediment carried by the Nalon River, which drains about two thirds of the Asturias region, which is located west of the beach. The dominant longshore currents in the Bay of Biscay, west to east, dragging these sediments making them trip over the Cape highlight Vidrias and depositing them on the beach of Bayas, leading to the formation of an important dune system, interrupted only by the Fontebona mouth of the stream, which separates the municipalities of Soto del Barco and Castrillón
