Did you know that... Acebedo

 

It is the largest town in the parish of Villapañada, one of the many parishes that make up the Grado council. Located on a slope facing south-east and being an obligatory pass of the Primitive Way, it is about two kilometres from the village of Grado. Acebedo or Acebeu, is a village whose hamlet is scattered by the slope distributed in districts like the one of El Cabayin or La Granda formed by hamlets like the one of La Barrera, El Cascayal, Ca Escuela... Although the area seems to have been uninhabited for a long period, this was not always the case, because very close to Acebedo an important lithic complex from the Lower or Middle Palaeolithic period has been located. In the district of La Granda, where today there is a house, was located the school to which the children of Acebedo and the surrounding villages went.
