Loriana, Lloriana in Asturian, is a village that together with La Bolguina and Faberín, in the meadows of the river Nora, are an obligatory step of the Primitive Way and form, together with other places of population, the parish of Loriana belonging to the council of Oviedo. It is located in the foothills of the Sierra de Lubrió, on a hill overlooking the valley of El Regueru la Güera or L'Agüera. Its origin is ancient, as the town and its church are already cited in a donation to San Salvador de Oviedo granted by King Alfonso III and his wife in the year 905.
In Loriana, a peaceful park, where a commemorative plaque reminds of a village teacher, serves at the same time as a scenic viewpoint. The parish church of San Bartolomé is surrounded by a beautiful countryside where it stands out as an old, perhaps Romanesque, unadorned façade of the old church, which according to 14th century data was dedicated to Santa María, and serves as an access to the atrium of the church of San Bartolomé. Attached to the exterior wall of the church is a washing place and a fountain called Fuentepeña, which was built in 1929. In addition to the town hall, you can admire a palace owned by the Martínez-Cardeñoso family, to which most of the parish estates belonged.
The parish of Loriana celebrates its patron saint, San Bartolomé, on 24 August.
On the outskirts of Loriana there is an old washing place known as La Pipera, where in the shade of the chestnut trees, in the past the people of the village came to do the laundry.
Loriana can be reached by the local road that starts from the AS-232 road and it is on this road, between the towns of Ponteo and Gallegos, where you will find the detour that leads to Loriana. Also in this same stretch but in the middle of the road are the towns of La Bolguina and Faberín.
