The hotel of the enamoured Indiano

Indianos. This was the name given to Spaniards who set off for America in search of fortune and years later managed to return to their homelands with their dreams fulfilled. One such ‘Indian’ was Vitorón, a man from Felechosa, a small village in Asturias between the San Isidro and Las Fuentes ski resorts, 50 kilometres from the coast.

When Vitorón embarked for Cuba, he left behind a girlfriend in Felechosa. Having made his money, he managed to return home. As he had so longed to return home, when he came back Vitorón had the plans for the house of his dreams in his case. It was a mansion in Cuban style, a beautiful building whose only problem was its flat roof, not very suitable for the rainy Asturian climate. Vitorón was rich and was on the way to making the house of his dreams, but he wasn’t to be happy. His loved one was of a different social class and his family arranged a wedding of convenience with another girl in the village. It is said that despite his fortune and his house, Vitorón never managed to forget the love of his youth.

The Indiano’s young bride did not live to enjoy the mansion, but we can enjoy it today. The Indiano’s House is now a delicate establishment that maintains the nostalgic story of the Indiano Vitorón. Like him, many immigrated in search of fortune and came back wealthy men. Just like the man from Felechosa, most of the Indianos showed their new status by building a house in American-style. Few Asturian villages do not have a house like Vitorón’s, beautiful manor houses that invite us to pay Asturias’s history an architectural visit.

hich creates it an thoughtful publish on your subject. In my opinion, you've presented the topic in a quite thorough yet concise manner, that is genuinely useful when someone wants to get the facts without spending too a lot time searching the online world and sifting out the noise to discover the answers to their questions. I usually get so frustrated with so plentiful in the final results inside the major SE's due to the fact they normally seem to mostly be filled with filler content that often isn't extremely sensible. If you don't mind I'm going to add this post and your web page to m ...
